Mead Library is now on our summer schedule and open two nights a week: Tuesday and Thursday. Summer hours are: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mead is closed on Sundays from May through September.

Stepping Stone at Make It @ Mead

The next monthly Make It @ Mead program will feature a stepping stone project. On Thursday, June 4, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., participants may make a stepping stone using mosaic tiles in the bottom of a pan for decoration with cement poured over the top. This project is for adults, teens and older children if an adult assists them, while supplies last. The program will be held in The Loft on the third floor.

Tai Chi Series this Summer

Mead will host eight short form sessions designed as an introduction to the Yang style of Tai Chi. Evelyn Prevenas will be the instructor and adults, including beginners, may attend any or all of the sessions. They will be held on Mondays, June 29-Aug. 10, at 1 p.m. at Mead, either indoors or outside. A final session on Friday, Aug. 14, at 8 a.m. will be held at King Park. More info here.

Program on D-Day on June 6

On Saturday, June 6, at 10 a.m., we'll present author Robert Mueller speaking on "The Men of Omaha Beach." The illustrated program will provide insight into how and where the D-Day invasion took place and the men responsible for the success of this risky endeavor. Mueller has written two books about battlefields in France and Belgium.
