Camp, Community, and School Collide at the Library

Library Camp is in full swing with fourteen youth spending their days reading, crafting, tinkering, and experimenting.

Learning about Electricity with Snap Circuits

On Monday, our campers solved our Bugged Escape Room puzzles and saved Dean from an uncertain fate.

4-H stopped out on Tuesday with hands-on projects, while Max the Magician awed an audience consisting of campers and the public on Wednesday.

This morning, campers read to visiting summer school students and a few public patrons who just happened to show up at the right time.

Nothing like sharing a good book with friends.

Rounding out the camp experience will be a mini-concert: “Strings Across the Ocean”. The public is invited to join us at 10:30am for this inventive musical collaboration.Strings

We are blessed to have the support of parents who send their children to us, the school for participating in educational events held at the library, the Pipestone Area Friends of the Library who~ along with the United Way~ provide us with the financial support for summer reading programming and supplies, as well as the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage fund for our musical performers.

Many thanks to them and our community media sources who share our Meinders Happenings.
