Solon Public Library
Meal and a Movie
The movie is free but registration is required for the catered meal and costs $7.50 for an entrée, vegetable and dessert. The movie follows the meal and usually begins around noon. Call Sandra Hanson at 319-624-2710 to register or sign up at Old Gold Dining.
On May 30 the Meal and a Movie group will be showing “Monuments Men.” An allied group, the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, are given the task of finding and saving pieces of art before they are destroyed by Hitler during World War II.
City-wide Garage Sale
The last day to register for spring cleaning and the City-wide Garage Sale is 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 3, but will close early if the maximum amount of sales is reached. The fee to register is $8 for a sale in-town, and $4 for an out-of-town sale. This year the dates for the city-wide garage sale will be Friday, June 6, and Saturday, June 7. Participants can sign up for one of the days or both Friday and Saturday. Registration forms are now available.
If you don’t have enough items for a sale of your own, think about donating your items to the library for our sale. The library cannot accept clothing, encyclopedias, LPs, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, old VCRS, old TV sets, or old computers. Please appropriately recycle those items. We will accept items for the garage sale anytime– no need to wait.
Teen Summer Reading kick-off party
Attention middle school and high school students. The Solon Public Library will be having its annual kick-off party for teens on Thursday, May 29, from 3:30 until 4:30 p.m. During this program, we will be chalking the walk, making root beer floats, and taking wacky pictures with our photo booth supplies.
Summer Reading kick-off party
The 2014 Summer Reading Program is for readers of all ages. This summer’s theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read!” and we will be offering programs, prizes, storytimes and more. The Summer Reading Program officially begins during the kick-off party on Thursday, May 29, from 5 until 6:30 p.m. The kick-off party is an opportunity for families to pick up reading logs and hear about the various programs the library will offer over the summer.
This year, the staff of Hills Bank and Trust is offering fun and exciting activities for children and their families. Hills Bank and Trust staff is going to use the five senses as the basis for the evening’s activities, which fits nicely within the science-related summer theme of “Fizz, Boom, Read!”
Starting June 2, the library will begin our summer hours. The hours will be Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Solon Library meeting room space
Now is the time for the groups that use the meeting room space, on an annual basis, to start planning ahead for next year. The library asks that you re-register your group each July. We will try to accommodate your traditional time and day of the week, whenever possible. Tuesday evenings will not be as available next year. Park and Recreation yoga classes will be scheduled for Tuesday nights, from approximately 4:30 until 7 p.m., from early fall through mid-spring.
Call the library at 319-624-2678 if you have questions.
