The St. Tammany Parish Library has a multitude of drop-in events scheduled at several branch locations through July 9. What makes these events different? There is no need to register to attend, it is self-paced, help is available for those who need it, and evening options are available.
The events include Shark Week Family Drop In at the Abita Springs, Lacombe, Lee Road and Slidell branches; Catan Jr. Pirate Family Game Time at the Pearl River branch; Magical Merpeople Family Drop-In at the Covington branch; SpongeBob Party Family Drop-In at the Madisonville branch; and the Fish Art Family Drop-in at the Slidell, Causeway, South Slidell and Lacombe branches.
The details of these and more family-friendly special events can be found at bit.ly/FamilyDrop-inSRC2022.
TEEN CHOICE: Teens can learn a new craft, learn sign language, learn to cook or learn about Gulf sea turtles — all at the library. Events include creative writing workshops with Joy Rancatore; teen and Tween cooking workshops with Culinary Kids; and archaeology workshops with the Louisiana Department of Archaeology. Find all teen events through July 9 at bit.ly/TeenEventsJUN-JULYSTPL.
SWIM: Before you get into the water, learn what everyone needs to know about pool safety from the St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office. See upcoming dates and times at bit.ly/PoolSafetySRC2022.
WALK & READ: StoryWalk is a way to get moving and have fun outside with the entire family. These fun, educational activities follow the laminated pages of a deconstructed children’s book (literally, a book taken apart) along a popular walking route. Find StoryWalk opportunities at bit.ly/StoryWalkSTPL.
READ: It’s StoryTime! with ocean-themed stories all summer with options for all ages. Find them at bit.ly/SummerReadingSTORYTIME.
POP: Friends of the Slidell Library’s silent auction of popular culture books and items is underway until July 6. Auction items are in the Slidell Branch library display cases near the meeting room at 555 Robert Blvd.
