About the Program
This year's theme for the summer is the same for all ages: Every Hero Has a Story!
Check our online calendar for a complete list of events for all ages. Hours of reading this summer will help raise money for three local charities: Make-A-Wish Foundation, Chances Animal Rescue, and A Very Special Place. Each time a weekly reading card is turned in, readers will vote for a charity plus earn a grand prize entry form. Votes will be tallied throughout the program, and the charity with the most votes will receive $500, second place $300, and third place $200. Kids and teens will also earn a free book prize when they complete cards 3, 6, & 8. Be a hero for someone else and keep your brain "super" strong this summer by participating in Every Hero Has a Story!

Meet us at Seth's Coffee for a new book club for the 20's & 30's crowd. We'll be discussing Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
"Lydia is dead. But they don't know this yet" . . . So begins the story of this exquisite debut novel, about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between cultures and the rifts within a family as they struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.
The next meeting of the Friends of the Kimberly-Little Chute Public Library is scheduled for Tuesday, June 2nd at 7:00PM at the Kimberly Library. All are welcome! Please bring your ideas and enthusiasm.
Library volunteer, Mary Lamers, has been recording video interviews of Kimberly residents who can remember the early days of the Village. During her interviews, she made connections with many local veterans who shared a wealth of history regarding their experiences in World War II. Come and hear their stories and help us celebrate the lives of our local heroes!
