The Clinton Public Library is throwing a big party for the kids who completed the Summer Reading program.
Bring your family and friends today from 5-7 p.m. for games, live animals, free food, a performance by the Clinton Showboat performers, and a bounce house in the parking lot outside the Main Branch.
Activities will be open to the public but only those children who have completed the summer reading program will be eligible to receive food during the event. Food will be served from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Winners of the Summer Reading Grand Prize drawings will also be announced at the party. Winners do not have to be present to receive their prizes. All activities are free, so join us in celebrating the end of summer reading.
Through 9 p.m. today, parking for library patrons will be available in the Discovery Center lot or in the city lot across from the YWCA. The library parking lot west of the building will be closed to make a safe outdoor environment for our Children’s Summer Reading After Party. We apologize for any inconvenience.
