DP Library News: June 2016 News

The Library is excited to be offering once again their Summer Reading Challenge, Read for the Win, starting on June 20 through August 1. Summer will be chalked full of exciting programs for children, teens, families, and adults. They will be having some amazing performers, starting with Dancing Tehani on June 22, with two programs— one for families at 2 p.m. and one for adults at 6 p.m. The following week, June 29, children and families can learn how to create their own balloon animals with Mr. Twister.
The Dana Point Library is getting a New Look The Friends of the Dana Point Library Bookstore will be closed from May 27 until June 13 because the library is getting a facelift with new Cement Board Siding.
There will be instruction materials, trucks, and scaffolding in the parking lot and dust while the work is being done. The bookstore cannot take book donations during this period.
The library will open after the termite tenting is done from that Friday, May 27 until the following Tuesday, May 31. Patrons will use the side door, as the front door will be unavailable and the parking will be very limited.
The Friends and librarians are excited with the changes being made and hope to see you at the library and bookstore after the work is completed.
