When the new library opened its doors, the Tyler Duelm Activity Room was unveiled. The room showcases not only Tyler's strength but also the things he loved thanks to the many heartfelt donations made in his memory. Hundreds of children have enjoyed story times, after-school programs, and summer reading programs in this cozy, welcoming space. We have launched a series of programs called Tyler's Time. The library hosts a variety of programs: for Preschool- aged, for Grades K through 2 and for Grades 3 through 6.
Upcoming Tyler's Time program:
The Pharaoh, The Sphinx and the Curse of the Mummy presented by Kidworks Touring Theatre Co
Friday, June 7, 7:00-8:00pm
Come dig into reading and explore Ancient Egypt "hands-on" with Kidworks Touring Theatre. Build a pyramid, act out a mummification ceremony, dress as King Tut, bow to Cleopatra, and learn Egyptian Belly dancing and doumbek drumming. This performance is fun for the entire family and loaded with audience participation.
In order to continue offering these fabulous programs, we need your help. For $25 you can purchase a leaf for yourself, a friend or family member, or in memory of a loved one. Consider a leaf as a gift for birthdays, graduations and other special occasions. Each Leaf owner will receive a personalized leaf on the Youth Services Department wall.
