When the thermometer hits 103 degrees and you’re wrinkled as a prune from hanging out in the pool—you’re going need something new to do, right? It’s too hot go outside. You’re “vehically-challenged” and can’t really go anywhere. The buttons on your game console have lost their spring from countless rounds of Donkey Kong. Now is a great time to flex your drawing skills!
The dog days of summer are upon us! The hottest part of the summer was first named the Dog Days thousands of years ago when Sirius, the Dog Star, rose during July and August around the same time as the sunrise in the Northern Hemisphere.
Ah, the outdoors! All the trees, the pretty plants, the birds, the strange bugs, and no telling what else you might discover when you look under the rocks and leaves. It's a little scary and sometimes prickly and stickly, but you can have the best fun there!
Austin Public Library has a variety of amazing programs in store for you this summer. You can cool off while watching Gusto the Great perform magic tricks or enjoy the Tap Dance Experience with Terrence “Taps” Bennett. Looking for something a little spooky to enjoy this summer? Stop by and listen to scary stories told by Bernadette Nason. (Don’t worry the stories are creepy but safe.)
The APL Blog promotes Austin Public Library's resources and services through thematic item lists from our collection; topics related to today's events and news; research tips; programs and events; and databases.
