Summer Reading Program

Lamar Public Library Staff and Volunteers are excited about the programs and activities we have planned and hope you and your young readers will enjoy…“Libraries Rock!”

Music brings people together; throughout history and around the world, music has been a special part of people’s lives, and it continues to play a fundamental role in celebrations, self-expression, communication, connection, and daily life. Whether you’re a fan of classical, jazz, oldies, country or peace and quiet!

Through books, games, musical experiences, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities, participants will interact with music and sound in a wide variety of ways.

Learn about famous musicians, try your hand at making an original instrument, discover the science behind the music you love, think about the music that nature is making every day, and rock your way around the world with hands-on activities for children and families. Lace up your dancing shoes, plug in your microphone, and get ready for a swingin’ summer as you celebrate the fact that… Libraries Rock!
