Switch gears from summer to school at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library.

September is Library Card Sign-up Month. A library card is a passport to the world and beyond. Learn about space, or learn a new language, or keep up with a favorite author’s latest work. Books, audiobooks, DVDs, are available for checkout Mondays through Saturdays.

The Heights library offers weekly activities for children and teens to support and add variety to the educational experience.

Busy teens can take a fun break during Teen Café, which meets every Monday from 4 to 5 p.m. for activities from movies to gaming.

Weekend activities hosted by the library for teens include Beyblade, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments. Meet from 1 to 3 p.m. with others interested in the trading cards, video games, or books.

The library’s Homeschooling Program will resume Sept. 3. A variety of lessons will be provided at 11 a.m. Wednesdays. For information, call the library at 254-953-5491.

Explore science with the library’s Science Club. Meet at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to learn about different branches of science.

Science Night is Thursday. The whole family is invited to participate in Thursday’s Family Fun Night at 6 p.m.
