Even though school is almost out of session, things are just starting to heat up at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library.

The annual “End of School Bash” is from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday. A DJ, refreshments, dancing and other activities will give teens an opportunity to celebrate the end of the school year with music, food and fun.

The Summer Reading Club begins in June. The club is not just about reading. Listening to books can be part of the summer’s reading goals. Other reading material, such as comics, magazines and newspapers, can be included.

Sign up at the library or online at www.ci.harker-heights.tx.us/library.

Along with activities, the Harker Heights Library is a source for services such as free Internet access, computers to aide in research, qualified test proctors and reference assistance. Call 254-953-5492 or visit the library’s website for more information.
