Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Summer Reading Highlights at the GCCL

The Glasgow City-County Library’s Summer Reading Program Ocean of Possibilities has lots of stuff planned for the month of July.

The Library will be sponsoring a pool day at the Glasgow city pool from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, July 7. This is open to all ages!

Week five activity and reading sheets will be available starting on Monday, July 11. These sheets can be picked up at the library or on their website,

The Fort Peck Summer Theatre’s Young Audience Tour will make a stop at the library on Tuesday, July 12, with their performance of The Country Mouse and the City Mouse.

Ernie and Ernest have been best friends for as long as they can remember. As pen pals they eagerly exchange letters almost every day, which travel nearly 5,000 miles between their homes in Montana and London. Though their daily routines are very different at times, they share what is most important: love of family and home and the value of having fun, as they learn about culture, sports, history and food (mainly cheese of course!).

The County Mouse and the City Mouse is written by Fort Peck Summer Theatre Artistic Director Andy

Meyers and produced in partnership with emerging company AM Theatrical. Original Music for the production is composed and arranged by Jane Best.

Theatre for Young Audience (TYA) is designed to educate and enlighten youth, with a goal to bring visibility, excitement and awareness about the performing arts. Under an hour in length, TYA productions are perfect for the entire family: geared towards children, but sure to engage all ages while it encourages and fosters a love for theatre. Admission for these performances is free.

The Lego Guy will also be making an appearance at the library on Wednesday, July 13. This program is open to all ages.

The Summer Reading Program will wrap up on Friday, July 15 where activity and reading logs must be turned in by 5 p.m. They can also be e-mailed to [email protected]. If emailing, please indicate which bucket you would like your tickets to go into.

There will be a party on Tuesday, July 19, starting at 10 a.m. for ages zero to 12 where prizes will also be distributed. Wednesday, July 20, is the Teen Summer Reading Party at noon, and the Adult Beach Paint Party will be on Tuesday, July 26, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

If you have any questions regarding the programs offered or the summer reading program, please contact the library at 228-2731.
