Elmwood City Park
Sunday, June 3 4-6pm
The Elmwood Library has a special event planned for Sunday, June 3! To kickoff our Summer Reading Program and its theme, “Library Rocks!” we’re going to rock out at the city park!
The fun starts with TWO food trucks ready to serve you! The Tastee Trailer (you may remember the old Tastee In and Out in Lincoln) and Kona Ice (Hawaiian-style shaved ice) will have supper and dessert too! Tastee Trailer is actually opening earlier in the day at 11am. Kona Ice will get started at 4pm.
The Librarian’s Table will open at 4pm. Be sure to get a $1.00 food truck coupon (compliments of American Exchange Bank) by showing your Elmwood Public Library Card. Or, apply for your own NEW card and you can still get a coupon! The librarian will also have information and pre-registration sheets for the Summer Reading Program. Dates for the program are June 6, 13, 20, & 27. Kids in grades K-6 are welcome to come read books, play games and make crafts designed to enhance their knowledge about music and sound.
Always popular with the little ones, we’ll have a face painting station too! Sponsored by Cindy Mather and Cindy Hovorka from “Your Thairapist,” the kids will look LOVELY for what comes next.
Starting at 5pm, the String Beans will take the stage. Based out of Lincoln, Nebraska, the String Beans perform a wide variety of family-friendly songs about all the things kids love: animals, cartoons, food, etc. Since debuting in 2004, the String Beans have released 10 albums and have appeared at numerous festivals, concerts and regional television programs. They’re energetic, silly and lots of fun.
We suggest that you bring your own lawn chair and enjoy the food, music and close feeling of community as we welcome summer in style!
