The Riverbank Library wraps up the summer with theatrical crafts.

As the Stanislaus County Library’s 2019 Summer Reading Challenge came to a close on Aug. 6, the Riverbank Library will continue to offer themed crafts throughout the month of August as a way to close out the summer.

“Showtime at Your Library is our Summer Reading theme, so this month we’re concentrating on theater,” said Victoria Holt, Riverbank Library supervisor.

Children can make their own felt finger puppets on Tuesday, Aug. 20 at 3:30 p.m.

“Finger puppets should be a lot of fun, making them and playing with them,” said Holt. “We’re making a mock puppet stage, so the kids can act out scenes with their puppets.”

These crafts are sponsored by the Friends of the Riverbank Library. The Riverbank Library is at 3442 Santa Fe St. For more information, contact Holt at 209-869-7008. Information on regularly occurring library programs can be found at, under the “Events and Classes” tab.

The Stanislaus County Library engages all members of the community and offers access to information, knowledge, and the tools for innovation and personal development. With 13 locations throughout the county, the Library offers free access to a diverse collection of materials, computers and Wi-Fi, Story Times, programming for all ages, and more.
