Events for children top this week’s activities at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library, with the first event geared toward teens during the Teen Dive In from 7:30 to 10 p.m. today at the Carl Levin Park pool. Gate prices apply.

Children can celebrate Father’s Day by creating a greeting card at 11 a.m. Saturday. The fun continues with “guys’ games” throughout the day.

Science activities will take center stage during the library’s summer programs. The Library Laboratory Opening party Wednesday kicked off the summer’s Wacky Wednesday shows. On June 18, Wacky Wednesdays continue with a science-based puppet show, “Black and White.” There will be two performances, at 9 and 11 a.m.

“Save a Life” Science is the theme of the Thursday Night Family Fun Night. Children and parents will learn ways to save a life using science starting at 6 p.m.

A new event for the Heights library is Book Swap Week, from Monday through Friday. During normal business hours, patrons can bring in a book to swap.

“The Invention of Wings,” by Sue Monk Kidd is the subject of this month’s meeting of the Book Club. Join the discussion, and share opinions with others at 6 p.m. Thursday.
