Summer Reading Program Starts Soon!


With a theme of “Our State, Our Story: Celebrating 100 Years of Arizona,” the Copper Queen Library’s free Summer Reading Program (SRP) for children ages 5-12 will begin on Wednesday, June 6, at 10:30am in the Children’s Library.

Registration is now open and will continue through the end of the program. While weekly attendance is encouraged, Bisbee children and out-of-town summer vacation visitors who are unable to attend every session are welcome to participate on a drop-in basis.

Meeting on Wednesday mornings from June 6 to July 25 from 10:30am–noon (with the exception of July 4), SRP will offer kids a creative and fun introduction to Arizona history with music, painting, poetry, crafts, and snacks. Programming is supported by the City of Bisbee and through the generosity of the Friends of the Copper Queen Library.

The schedule is:

June 6: Pat Rhoads – Paint Arizona in Watercolors
June 13:
Patty Wells – Arizona Gardening
June 20: Colleen Crowlie – Poetry & Collage Poetry Posters
June 27: Candace Benjamin – Early Arizona Pioneers
July 4: Closed for Independence Day
