Fantastic library events don’t always take place at the library. Sometimes they occur outside of the confines of shushing librarians and shelf after shelf of books. Recently the Mt. Vernon City Library met at Common Grounds for a poetry/open-mic night.
Alberta (Teen services extraordinaire) was keeping things going when she got up front and started everyone off with a mind blowing poem. After that, everyone had to get up there to read. The evening ended with lot’s of poetry and music, both vocal and instrumental. It was really quite lovely. So, keep your eyes peeled for events happening in and out of your library this summer!
Upcoming events outside of the library include:
- National ‘Go Skateboarding Day’ at the Burlington Skate Park on Monday, June 21. Summer reading sign-ups from 3-5 PM with free cold beverages.
- Drumming Workshop with Ray Soriano @ Common Ground on Wednesday, July 28 from 7-8 PM.
- Day-Glo Xtreme Beach Games @ Skagit Playfields (down by the horseshoes) on Wednesday, July 28 from 8:30-10 PM.
- Everett Aqua Sox Game on Sunday, August 8, 2:05 PM.
Get out there, enjoy your library, and READ!!
