Libraries rock with summer reading fun
The Multnomah County Library's summer reading program is in full swing and that means tons of fun performances, programs and activities are coming to the four local branches.
Kids can win cool prizes by reading, being read to or doing other literacy activities as part of the library's summer reading game. Visit your closest branch to sign up and get the details on the program.
All these entertaining and educational events are free. Call 503-988-5123 for more information.
Surely you joust!
The super-popular Knights of Veritas will present a fast-paced, family-friendly program suitable for all ages focusing on connecting things medieval to STREAM concepts (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math).
The program, from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, July 20, will include fan favorites such as a leverage demonstration with an audience member and cutting demonstration with a sword and some never-before-seen stunts.
