Gadsden public libraries kick-off summer programs

Are you scrambling around trying to figure out last minute plans for your family this summer? Sometimes work consumes so much time that planning family activities and vacations can be thrown into a last-minute overload of jumping in the car and hurrying off to a spur of the moment event choice. That is why it is always a great idea to pick up a local newspaper to find out about upcoming events.

The Gadsden County Library is a great place to enjoy a variety of family-oriented activities during their summer program. Movie days are planned for the dates of June 7, June 14, and June 20 from 1p.m. – 3 p.m. The movie presented on June 7 will be located at the McGill Library in Quincy. The next planned movie will be hosted at the Havana Library on the 14, and the Cowen Public Library will host a movie on June 20.

There will also be a free legal clinic held on August 29 from 12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. called Justice on the Block that will provide an educational presentation on the topic of disability and social security. The clinic is a first come first serve event and it is asked that participants bring any documentation or paperwork related to legal questions. The clinic will be held at 732 South Pat Thomas Parkway in Quincy. 

There are many other activities planned such as Family Paint Night, Adopt-A Monster & Read, a magic show etc. Be sure to stop by a Gadsden County library location and ask about upcoming events that your family might enjoy attending or participating in.
