Birds of Prey at Summer Reading Finale

An eagle visits Laura's Library

Has your family been reading this summer? It’s not too late to pick up a passport at the library and log some of your literary travels. What did you read? What faraway and nearby places did you visit in your reading and in real life? Did you learn anything new this summer? Did you meet your reading goals? Did you have fun along the way? Is your brain ready to go back to school?

Bring your passport and join us on Friday, July 28, from 5-7pm at Laura’s Library for our Summer Reading Finale. We will acknowledge your summer reading journey with a special stamp in your passport, an award ribbon, a book bag to decorate, a free book, and a treat of Frozy’s Shaved Ice. Adults can bring their passports too!

We will also enjoy a Birds of Prey demonstration (starting at 5:30) from the wildlife experts at Urban Interface. We’ll meet and learn all about real life raptors like hawks, owls, eagles, and merlins. These amazing birds are known for their keen eyesight, strong talons, and sharp, curved beaks – perfect for hunting down, catching, and devouring small animals. You can read up on them ahead of time at the library!

Our finale is sponsored by our Friends of the Library, a volunteer group that raises funds for special events and projects like this. Interested in helping? We can always use more Friends!
