Summer Reading  
Adventure Begins at your Library

Take and Makes

Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library will be sponsoring “Take and Make” crafts throughout the summer.

The kits contain any special materials you will need, although for some kits you may need to use your own scissors, tape, markers, or glue. Kits are available to all ages on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Check back often for new kits.

Please check the Les Cheneaux Community Library’s Facebook page for up- to- date information on kits and activities available.


Activity Trail on the Porch

Come stomp, wiggle, roar, and spin your way down our covered porch .  Fun for ALL ages.


Little Free Art Gallery

Once again, Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library is sponsoring a Little Free Art Gallery on the library grounds.  The gallery is based on The Little Free Library concept of book sharing except in this instance it is art sharing.  Art size is limited to anything smaller than 4”x”6 (postcard). All types of art are welcome.

Stop by and have a look around—feel free to take a piece, leave a piece, or both. the only rule is that you can’t take the furniture or the patrons.


Reading Buddies

Our summer reading program, “Adventure Begins at Your Library" runs from June 15th through August 17th.   Children are welcome to complete an adoption application to be eligible to take home a reading buddy (while supplies last). There is also a reading challenge that when completed and returned to the library will earn a prize.
