With the weather warming and schools letting out, the Mount Pleasant Public Library is wasting no time in introducing their first round of summertime activities. June will see a diverse selection of programs and community gatherings that will satisfy all age groups.
Beginning June 4th, the library will host an exhibition of the photography of Robert Uricchio. A renowned landscape photographer, Uricchio's works feature gorgeous shots of the California Coast and Yellowstone National Park, as well as the Hudson Valley. The exhibit will run through July 8th.
On Sunday, June 5th, pianist Marvin Rosen will celebrate the career of Alan Hovhaness. The late composer's mystical piano solos will be highlighted, as well as several duets with special guest Jennifer Castellano.
College bound juniors and seniors will be honored later in the month with a special program hosted by Carol Gill Associates. With more than twenty years of experience in college advising, members will speak with high school students as well as their parents. The seminar takes place on June 13th, and will focus on alleviating the stress of the transition to higher education for both parents and their children.
In addition to these and other special programs, the library will continue to provide support for the literary community. Monthly reading groups such as Women Reading Women and the 21+ Book Club will also resume throughout the summer.
For kids, the library will still be offering their weekday story times in June, including Here We Are Together, which features story time, songs, and simple crafts for children 5 and under , on Tuesday through Thursday. Youngsters can also still enjoy the Mother Goose and Book An Adventure story groups on Wednesdays as well.
By hosting such a diverse offering of programs, the Mount Pleasant Public Library ensures that there will be something for everyone who wants a break from the summer heat.
