Summertime @ The Terrebonne Parish Library
There's a lot going this summer at the library, and here are some events and programs you might want to know about:
1. The annual summer reading program, titled "Once Upon a Time" begins May 26 and ends July 25. Children through the sixth grade can read books to win prizes, participate in arts and crafts workshops and see live performances. Coupons and certificates from local businesses reward those kids who complete the program.
Teens and adults aren't left out, either. The teen summer program, "Express Yourself" will have workshops just for teens. Remind the young adult in your life that the library is a safe and sophisticated place to meet a friend or just hang out.
2. In June, a collection of folk art featuring the work of 21 southern artists from 9 states will be passing through. This display of so-called "outsider" art will feature text panels and photographs explaining where the artists got their inspiration.
