This summer is packed with special programs at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library. Activities for children, teens, adults and families are scheduled all summer, including reading clubs, camps, workshops, trips and performances designed to keep minds stimulated and engaged while school is out.

The first program to start is the Summer Reading Club. The club is more than just reading books. Members can peruse magazines, newspapers and graphic novels. Children can sign up beginning in June.

Teens who want to make friends and a difference in their community can volunteer at the library this summer. They can gain job skills and earn volunteer hours for clubs and classes. Call 254-953-5491 for more information.
