Summer Reading Continues at Union County Library System

Daniel Prince

Fintastic Friday programs, crafts, movies all part of the summer reading lineup

Summer reading is rolling along at the Union County Library System. Register to take part at There, you can track your reading and activities and earn badges throughout the summer. This year’s summer reading theme is Oceans of Possibilities. Join the library today and each Friday for their Fintastic Fridays program. It runs from 11 a.m. until noon and is held outside the library. They will have sprinklers, yard games, crafts, and more.

Each Tuesday at 10 a.m., the library holds its weekly Tuesday Storytime for ages birth to 4, with stories, music, crafts, and fun. On Tuesday afternoons from 4-6 p.m., you are invited for their weekly craft series, Take & Make vs. Make & Take. Each week has a different theme and different crafts. You can come to the library, make the craft, and take it home, or come pick up the supplies for the craft, take them home, and make them at home. Next Tuesday’s theme is “A Day at the Beach”. The event is for all ages.

There are two more Movies Under The Stars events planned. On July 11, they will show the movie Sing 2, and on July 18, they will show Spiderman: No Way Home. Folks are invited to gather on the library lawn at 8:30, and the movie begins at sundown. In case of inclement weather, it will be moved inside. Bring a blanket or chair for seating. Snacks are sold by the Friends of the Library.

A program for adults will be coming on Thursday, July 14, from 5-6 p.m. Come in and make your own eco-friendly cleaning products. Two more summer reading performers are scheduled to come in this year. The Aquarium Rovers from the South Carolina Aquarium will be at the library on Thursday, July 14, at 4 p.m., and Bright Star Touring Theatre will present The Little Mermaid on Thursday, July 28, at 3 p.m.
