Summer Fun At Riverbank Library

There’s no shortage of fun programs and activities for all this summer at the Riverbank Library.

Teens and adults are invited to the Riverbank Rocks program on Saturday, June 17 at 2 p.m. Crafters will have the opportunity to paint rocks that can be left in the community as hidden treasures. This craft is messy, so participants are encouraged to dress accordingly.

Children and their families can enjoy an interactive show presented by the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company on Monday, June 19 at 12 p.m. This show, entitled “The Ribbles Build a Residence,” will focus on the building of a new, environmentally friendly dream home for the Ribbles, with help from the bird architect Thia Tweet and Brooklyn contractor Gerry the Ant. The audience will also have an opportunity to help the Ribbles by playing interactive games and discovering basic building techniques. This program is best for ages 5 and up, but all ages are welcome.

The library will host a bad art competition on Tuesday, June 20 at 3:30 p.m. Teens are invited to create bad art using paint, glitter, paper and other assorted craft materials. The worst “masterpiece” will win a prize.

The Riverbank Library Book Club will meet on Tuesday, June 27 at 4 p.m. to discuss ‘The Light Between Oceans’ by M.L. Stedman. Library book clubs provide an opportunity for community members to expand their knowledge of books through meaningful discussion with others.

Riverbank Rocks and the bad art competition are sponsored by the Friends of the Riverbank Library. The Riverbank Library is at 3442 Santa Fe St., Riverbank.
