Shreve Memorial Library’s “Oceans of Possibilities” Summer Reading Program encourages children, teens, adults, and families to explore the ocean depths through reading and interactive programming. Throughout the summer, the library has hosted a series of DIY (do-it-yourself) programs to teach adults and teens how to make their own oceans of possibilities at home. The programs continue in July with sewing, glass blowing, and building home aquarium programs hosted at several Shreve Memorial Library branches.
Teens are invited to learn the basics of using a sewing machine at the Atkins and Mooretown Branches this week. Teens will learn key stitches and sewing techniques and will use sewing machines to create a throw pillow. All supplies will be provided for the program. Due to the limited number of sewing machines available, each sewing class is limited to 10 students. The beginner sewing workshops will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13 at the Atkins Branch, 3704 Greenwood Road, and at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 15 at the Mooretown Branch, 4360 Hollywood Avenue. Registration is required for both programs.
Sanctuary Glass Studio will visit the West Shreveport Branch, located at 4380 Pines Road, on Tuesday, July 19 at 4:30 p.m. to introduce teens to the art of glass blowing. Participants will learn basic glass blowing techniques and how to become involved in glass blowing. Teens will also be able to paint glass-blown flowers during the workshop. The workshop is limited to 20 attendees, and registration is required.
In keeping with the “Oceans of Possibilities” theme, Shreve Memorial Library branches will also welcome Tulley Covington from Aquarium Concepts to lead a workshop “All about Home Aquariums” at the Hollywood/Union Avenue Branch on Tuesday, July 19. During the fun and informative demonstrations, library patrons will learn how to set up a freshwater or saltwater aquarium in their homes. The program will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Hollywood/Union Avenue Branch, located at 2105 Hollywood Avenue, and is open to all who are interested in learning more about starting a marine aquarium and to those who are just curious to see how it is done.
All programs are free and open to the public. To register, visit or call the branches listed above. Additional details and information can be found at www.shreve-lib.org.
The “Oceans of Possibilities” Summer Reading Program is open to all ages, and patrons can participate by logging books online and attending a large variety of interactive, live programs at their favorite Shreve Memorial Library branch. Children, aged birth to 10, are encouraged to read five books over the summer, teens aged 11 to 17 are asked to read at least three books, and adults are tasked with reading two books. As patrons log books online, they will receive digital badges for each book read. Those who complete the 2022 Summer Reading Program challenge will receive prizes including drawstring bags, books, pencils, and other assorted promotional items. Visit the Library for registration.
