Hula, Henna and Hangin' Out!

Summer vacation is underway and the library has loads of great programming to help keep the kids entertained and learning. Holly's Hula Show takes place on Saturday, June 15 at 11:00 a.m. Children ages 3 and up with parent or caregiver can join Holly Nagel as she brings the sights and sounds of Hawaii to the library through music, dance, stories, and interactive fun. She’ll also share Hawaiian words, hula moves, beautiful costumes, and Polynesian instruments.

Come back to the library on Tuesday, June 18 at 4:15 p.m. to learn all about henna art! Children ages 7 and up will learn about henna hand designs from India and other kinds of traditional body painting from around the world in this fun multicultural program! They will then be able to practice sketching popular henna motifs and draw on their own hands with washable watercolor pencils. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED for the henna program.

Families will also want to take part in our Park-A-Day Challenge where you will be able to visit your local parks AND enjoy a half-hour storytime program led by a children’s librarian. Play together, meet other families, and enjoy the North Shore’s amazing Park District spaces! This is not a drop-off program; parents are responsible for their own children at each park.

Saturday, June 15, at 4:00 p.m. at Indian Hill Park (Winnetka)
Sunday, June 16, at 4:00 p.m. at Kalk Park (Glencoe)
