Summer in the Library Makes SE:NCE
Summer in the library makes SE:NCE? What’s right. Summer in the library means Summer Enrichment: Nettle Creek Excellence. Join us for a variety of events for many ages to encourage reading for recreation and remind us that learning is fun.
No matter how old you are, you can register for the SE:NCE program. Special registration projects and calendars are available in the library at the circulation desk and the information display. You can also download them by clicking on one of below links.
Registration Worksheet with Chair – Select this if you would also like to decorate the attached beach chair. Each person who decorates, assembles, and returns their chair will receive a small prize. This should be printed on heavier weight paper or the chair may need to be reinforced with straws or popsicle sticks.
Registration Worksheet w/o Chair – Select this if you just want to download and print a registration worksheet. When you print this, TWO registrations will print. You only need one. Why not share with a friend?
You can also register online here.
If you’d like to download a master calendar, it’s here. Be forewarned, this is a large format calendar and will print out very tiny on regular 8.5″ x 11″ paper. If you’d like a hard copy, they’re available in the library. You can also check out our online calendar.
If you are interested in registering for individual events, click on the appropriate links below (some may not be available yet). Make sure to check our online calendar for a complete list of events since some DO NOT require registration.
