“Seriously Science!,” the Goshen Public Library’s 2014 Teen Summer Reading Experience, is set from June 9 to July 19. The program is open to young people in grades six through 12.

Organizers invite young people at the library to read for fun and for prizes this summer. They can also take advantage of free “Seriously Science” events in which they can explore the aerodynamics of kite building, create their own art-making machine, gaze at celestial bodies, identify local flora and fauna or learn the art of cheese making.  

Registration begins June 9 in the lobby. Call 533-9531 for more information.  

Holiday closing

The library will be closed May 25 and 26 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. Summer hours will begin when the library reopens. Summer hours will be Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The library will be closed on Sundays.

Rain barrel

A teen-designed and created rain barrel is on display in the lobby now through the end of May. The rain barrel, featuring hand-painted, oversized water bugs of every kind, will be auctioned during the June First Fridays event June 6 at 6 p.m. at the main stage of the Courthouse lawn.

Proceeds from the rain barrel will benefit The Friends of Goshen Public Library in association with GPL Teens and the Elkhart River Restoration Association.   

Storytime Express

Storytime Express sessions are set for Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. “Moms and Dads Read!” is the theme of the program.  During the month of May, in honor of mothers, children are invited to the library to listen as “Storytime Moms” (and Dads) read aloud their favorite books. A coloring activity is also planned.

This free program is geared for preschoolers ages 2 to 5. No registration is needed.

Authors to visit

Two authors will be at the library’s Schrock Auditorium June 7 starting at 1 p.m. Saloma Furlong will discuss her new book, “Bonnet Strings: an Amish Woman’s Ties to Two Worlds.” This, her second book, further explores Furlong’s break from the Amish world in which she was raised. Joining her will be local author Rachel Nafziger Hartzler, who will discuss her work, “No Strings Attached.”

Advance registration is not necessary. For more information, call 533-9531.
