Summer Plans at the Library

Welcome to summer at the Frankfort City Library!

We will continue to have story hour for ages 3-5 every Wednesday from 1:00 – 2:00.

Lego Club will be every Wednesday from 2:00 – 3:00 for all ages.

The summer reading program theme is:  Libraries Rock!  We will look at the different aspects of music and center our activities around music

Instead of having summer reading program during June, we are going to wait and have it in July.  Seems like so much goes on in June for the kids, it might be more relaxing in July.  3rd – 6th grade will meet every Monday in July; K-2nd grade will meet every Tuesday in July.  Both times are 1:30 – 3:00.  This is the grade just finished.

Each week, we will have something different planned.  Come and have some fun with us!  We will have the usual reading contest to see who can read the most books.  We always have a party at the end to celebrate your success in reading.  A water balloon fight is planned; as well as s’mores and ice cream. We also have a Bookmark Club:  after reading a book, fill out a short report, add it to the jar and at the end of the summer, we will have a drawing.  The more times your name is added, the more likely you are to win a prize!

For the first Monday and Tuesday, July 2nd and 3rd, Mrs Ann Graham will be present to talk about the country of Peru.  She is bringing different articles that she has accumulated from being there. The public is invited.  1:30 – 3:00.

On July 9th and 10th, Mary Aikens will bring her mountain dulcimer and auto harp.  She will show instruments from other countries.  Public is invited:  1:30 – 3;00

For the 3-6th grade, on Monday July 16, Chalon Barnett will show the kids how to do lazer engraving.  On Tuesday July 17, we will experiment with different common items and put together our own band.

On July 23, Mr. Cain Ford will be present to talk about how to become a DJ.  He will also DJ a dance for the 3rd – 6th grade.  We will have a rock n roll photo booth.

Jefferson Knapp, a Wichita KS children’s author, is bringing a 25 ft. animatronic python.  He also will show us how to write about our memories.  His books talk about simple memories that he had growing up and make them into adventures. He will perform on July 24 at 1:30.  The public is invited.

On July 30 at 1:30, Miss Rodeo Kansas, Mikhayla DeMott from Manhattan will talk about her rodeo experiences. She will be joined by Sydney Wapp,  Miss Rodeo El-Kan Princess. She will talk about her experiences as well.  She is the daughter of Joe and Jodie Wapp. The public is invited

Adult Coloring Club

Join the adults as we get together to do some coloring.  Bring your own books and colors if you have them.  If not, the library has many to choose from.  There are seasonal mandalas, snowflake mandalas, butterflies, flowers, and many others.  A fun, relaxing way to unwind.  Good anti-stress therapy.  Grab a friend or two and join us the first and third Thursday of each month at 1:00.  Stay as long as you like.

We also do coloring during our monthly adult book club the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30

Everyone welcome!

Library Has a New Look

Thanks to the generous memorial donation from Mr. and Mrs. Don Twidwell, the library has made an update on the building.  Deb Dwerlkotte, of Dwerlkotte Design helped co-ordinate a new paint job and new carpet.  She will also help with choosing new chairs.

Stop in at the library and see the new look!


Lego Club meets from 2:00 – 3:00 each day that there is a PLC Day as there is no school.   Kids of all ages come together to use their imaginations to build all kinds of creations.  It is displayed on Lego shelves until we run out of legos – then we start over.  One name is drawn out from all names submitted for a prize.
