Following Wednesday’s End of Summer Party featuring big trucks and the weeklong Writing Camp, the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library is moving from the end of summer to the beginning of another school year.

To wrap up its Spark a Reaction summer reading program, the library will be mixing up potions, and conducting quidditch games at GeekFest today through Sunday on the Central Texas College campus.

Two storytimes will be provided through the fall. Wednesday storytime will be added to the library’s lineup of activities for children. Stories, songs and crafts begin at 10 a.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Parents and children can join in the Back to School Bash at 6 p.m. Thursday during Family Fun Night.

The Book Club meets at 6 p.m. Thursday. “That Part was True,” by Deborah McKinley will be discussed.

Health, autism and justice are subjects of recently acquired nonfiction audio eBooks.

“A Short Guide to a Long Life,” by David B. Agus, M.D. provides daily routines for health. “Send in the Idiots: Stories from the Other Side of Autism,” by Kamran Nazeer, who was diagnosed with autism as a child, explores how people learn to think and feel. “Waiting to be Heard,” by Amanda Knox is her account of her trial, imprisonment, and fight for justice and freedom.

Fiction audio eBooks recently acquired include the first book of a new mystery series, and another mystery, both for juvenile readers. “Capture the Flag,” by Kate Messner begins the new Silver Jaguar Society series. In “A Tangle of Knots,” by Lisa Graff, 11-year-old Cady has to solve a puzzle.
