Adventures for all ages abound at the library for summer reading


With a theme of “Adventure Begins at Your Library,” the Pass Christian Summer Library Program has begun – and it’s not just for kids.

Beginning May 29, every Wednesday through July 10 will bring free family programs to the library, including a Gulf Coast safari, a visit from the Hattiesburg Zoo, illustrating fun with Chuck Galey, reading with author Mary Annaïse Heglar, learning how to keep wild families together with Woodside Wildlife Rescue, and how to prevent wildfires with Smokey Bear and Officer Kevin Craft. The closing party on July 10 – also at 10 a.m. – will feature not only The Magical Musical Meteorology Tour with Stormin Bob Swanson, but also reading prizes and snowballs.

Registration can be found at or by visiting the library. 

Adults are encouraged to participate in summer reading, as well, with a new “Silent Book Club” planned for Saturday, June 8, at noon, as well as on July 13 and August 10. Adult readers are encouraged to bring whatever reading material they would like – manga, magazines, a paper book or e-reader, or even an electronic book or podcast – to read and discuss, if desired, at the book club. Donuts and coffee will be provided.

In addition, the community is invited to attend a pizza chat and discussion of The Vaster Wilds by One Book One Pass author Lauren Groff on Wednesday, June 26. Pizza, beverages and more will be provided, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the library conference room. Copies of the book are available for check out at the library, and the ebook and eaudio are available through Hoopla.

All events are free.

The Pass Christian Library is located at 111 Hiern Avenue in Pass Christian. The complete  summer library schedule is available at the library or on the Pass Christian Library Facebook  Page. For more information, call the library at 228-452-4596.
