With school out for the summer and the Colorado weather cooperating, the library has plenty of programs and resources to make your summer memorable.

Take your summer to new heights with the space-themed Summer Adventure Program June 3 through August 9. Read and choose adventures to score prizes. This out-of-this-world program is open to all ages — from birth to 99+!
- Rec and Tech in the Park
Head on over to Severance’s Lakeview Park to try out our tech toys (like our drones, Dash Robot, Sphero R2-D2, Cozmo, and more), compete in games, make a craft, and have a snack. Join Miss Kat every Thursday at 4 p.m. for Rec and Tech.

Our Drone Quadcopter is great for novice pilots. Auto-orientation and one-button controls allow you to take-off, land, and perform 360-degree flips, while the six-axis stabilization system will allow you to glide, race, and soar through the air while maintaining safe, stable flight.
