Do you know a middle- or high-school student who loves zombies? We are hosting a Zombie Makeup Workshop on Wednesday July 15th 2015 at 1pm where kids and teens can learn the tricks behind movie makeup. They will get a chance to be both the makeup artist and model. We have all the supplies for this free event.
The family entertainment for next week is Super Hero Academy for kids. Bring your little ones to the Smart Community Room on Wednesday July 15th, 2015 at 6:30pm, where they will create their own superhero costume (and one for their ‘sidekick’ if they bring a stuffed animal), complete an obstacle course, and get an official superhero certificate.
Don’t forget to keep reading. Bring in your completed summer reading logs to earn free books!
Kids Club is a program for children ages 5 and up. Kids are given time to try educational games on our iPads, try out the game Minecraft, and do crafts. We meet in the Sidney Library’s PCC (Public Computing Center) every Tuesday. This summer we will be there from 3 – 5pm each week.

Our first Family Entertainment activity of the summer is a scavenger hunt for kids on Wednesday July 1st, 2015 at 6:30pm. Kids can follow clues to explore all the library has to offer. Join us as we begin the event in our Smart Community Room and branch out all throughout the library. We hope to see you there!
Kids are invited to join us as we celebrate the beginning of this summer’s reading program. On Saturday June 27th from 1-3pm, we will be on the lawn of the Sidney Library offering face painting, crafts, and giveaways. Kids can pick up their summer reading logs and information about our big plans for this summer. We will also have treats for you to enjoy, such as popsicles and Chobani yogurt. We hope to see you there!
In case of bad weather, the event will still take place, but we will move inside to the Smart Community Room.
We have a variety of library programs available for young children. Here are just a few:

- Lego Time offers preschool through school age children a chance to play and create with Legos.
