What a summer we have been having here at the Riverview Veterans Memorial Library! Our “Universe of Stories” themed summer programming offered readers of all ages: the opportunity to earn prizes by reading, participate in a nerf war, learn to play hand drums, make edible slime, hold a python and much, much more! This month, we are wrapping up our space-themed fun to get ourselves ready to host engaging, fun and free fun for community members of all ages during the fall and winter months. Starting September 1, 2019, we will have a full calendar of events available on our Facebook page and website. We will also continue to print our calendar of events in the Riverview Register and have print calendar available at the circulation desk. We wish all readers lots of fun in the sun and hope to see you at the Library soon & often!
