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.
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.
Mead Library will be open on Thursday nights this summer, so when you're downtown to attend the Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series, June 25 to Sept. 3, be sure to stop over and see what's going on. We'll have drop-in fun and games for kids and adults, book sales, book character visits, and some special events. Watch for more details!
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.
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.
Mead Public Library is now the home of the Mead Seed Library. Come in and pick out some seeds, plant them, let some go to seed, then return some of the next generation seeds for others to borrow. Stop in any time the library is open and check it out. The Seed Library is located at the top of the stairs on the second floor. More info here.
