Reardan Memorial Library serves as a public information provider for our community, using traditional and innovative technology to encourage curiosity, free inquiry and lifelong learning in a friendly environment.

   

 

Thanks to grants from the Washington State Library and Inland Northwest Community Foundation, kids in Lincoln and Adams counties can take advantage of a fun summer day camp beginning this July.

The day camp program, called Stimulating Summers, will be available in Reardan, Harrington and Lind.  The day camp will run for six weeks beginning July 3 and ending August 11.  Registration will begin in early April and will cost $50 a week.  

Morning activities are being planned around themes such as pirates, astronomy (partial solar eclipse this August!), mad science, and art around the world. 

Kids will have the opportunity to keep up their reading skills by visiting the library every day and checking out books.

In the afternoon, kids will visit community pools and play sports. They also will have the chance to attend their local Vacation Bible School programs in conjunction with this program.

Field trips are being scheduled for Fort Spokane, Inland Northwest Rail Museum, Lincoln County Museum, Grand Coulee Dam/Colville Tribal Museum and Mobius Science Museum.

In addition, these camps will also serve as free summer meal sites for both the children attending the camps and other kids in the communities.

 

The program came together through the combined efforts of the Ritzville Library District, Reardan City Library, WSU Lincoln County extension service, Lincoln County Economic Development Council and Washington State Library.  The city of Reardan is serving as the administrative lead for the grants.

For questions about the program, contact Reardan City Librarian Suzanne Schulz at reardanlibrary@yahoo.com or 509 994-9997.
