Tales from Tyson Library!

Hello summer! The Tyson Library has many fun things in store for the summer. Our Summer Explorers Kick-Off starts on Saturday, June 8th with Professor Steve’s Space and Flight Show. Summer Explorers will start the next week on Tuesdays through Fridays this summer and the theme is “A Universe of Stories.” The Library will also be hosting a “Star Party” at the Versailles Sports Complex on Friday, July 5th. Be sure to sign up for these fun programs by using our new registration on our website or by calling the library!

Ms. Linda has a few new adult programs at the library. The most recent being Line Dancing on Mondays during the summer. Our monthly Book Club is still going on as well so make sure to stop by the library to pick up the book of the month along with some discussion questions. The Tyson Library will be collaborating with the Osgood/Milan Library as well as the Batesville Library this summer on programs related to the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing. Programs are made possible by a grant from the Indiana Humanities.

Our goal, in everything we do, based on the precept set forth by Mr. James Tyson, is to “Educate, Enlighten and Enrich”.  As we continue to evolve with the needs of our community, we welcome any input you have regarding programs, materials, or anything else we can do to serve our community and our community is YOU!
