Summer Fun at the Library

Looking for FREE and FUN educational activities while the kids are out of school? The Beaumont Public Library System is back to in-person programming and has you covered! Their Summer Reading Club 2022 lasts eight weeks and has activities for many children and young adults to keep them busy outside the classroom. Activities are spread across all four branches, so there’s fun to be had wherever you live. Registration starts May 31 and programs begin June 4, so head on over to your local library to sign up today! 

Family Story Time at Beaumont Botanical Gardens 

Bring your whole family out to the Beaumont Botanical Gardens on Mondays at 10 am for a Family Story Time and nature-themed craft! While you’re out there, stroll around the conservatory and the beautiful gardens to appreciate the outdoors. Admission to the Beaumont Botanical Gardens and Family Story Time is completely free. (Please note: there is no program on Monday, July 4).

Arts, Crafts, and Movies for Youth and Teens 

Each week throughout June and July, the Elmo Willard Library, Theodore Johns Library, and R. C. Miller Library will be hosting age-specific activities specifically designed for ages five to twelve, and ages twelve to eighteen!  

Kids can join the fun at the Theodore Johns Library on Mondays at 2 pm, Wednesdays at the Elmo Willard Library at 10 am, and Thursdays at the R. C. Miller Library at 2 pm. Some of the activities include Rock Painting, Making Play Dough, and a K-9 Meet with one of Beaumont Police Department’s furry officers! Each week is a different activity, so check the schedule to see what’s happening.  

You older kids (teens, ages 12-18), don’t worry! There are weekly activities specifically designed for you too. You can make firecracker slime, play live-action Angry Birds, and even find a hidden treasure at the Pirate’s Bounty Escape Room. You can join the fun at the Elmo Willard Library on Tuesdays at 2 pm, R. C. Miller on Wednesdays at 2 pm, and the Theodore Johns Library on Fridays at 2 pm. Be sure to check the calendar, so you don’t miss a minute of it. 

Pre-K Story Time

There is Pre-K Story Time every week for the younger set at the Theodore Johns Library at 10 am on Tuesdays, the Elmo Willard Library at 10 am on Thursdays, and the R. C. Miller Library at 10 am on Fridays. You can expect songs, puppet shows, and stories that encourage development of early literacy skills. 

Mother Goose Story Time 

Children who are not yet walking and their caregivers are invited to Mother Goose Story Time at the R. C. Miller Library at 2 pm on Tuesdays and 10 am on Wednesdays all summer long! Stories are specially curated and are read by a different staff member specially trained for storytelling each week.  

Weekly Movie Binges 

The force is strong this summer! Every Saturday from June 4 to July 16 (with a break July 2 for the holiday), Star Wars Movies Episodes 1-6 will be shown at the Elmo Willard Library at 2 pm. Bring a blanket and some snacks and enjoy the matinee! If you’d prefer to catch up with Harry, Hermoine, Ron, and the Hogwarts gang, Harry Potter Movies 1-8 will be shown every Saturday at the R. C. Miller Library at 10 am. Or make it a fun Friday for the princes and princesses with Disney day at the Theodore Johns Library. Every Friday at 3 pm is a different movie, so that’s eight chances to re-live your favorite fantasies this summer! 

Imagination Kits Elevated 

Imagination Kits are extra special for summer. There will be four kits available -- Feed the Shark, Water Cycle in a Bag, Dancing Snake, and Fruit Loop Jellyfish. These kits are specifically designed as STEAM-friendly activities and can be picked up from any library branch at the beginning of the week to complete at home. Imagination Kits are available for 2 weeks each while supplies last.


STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Camp is perfect for kids looking for a challenging, creative, and comprehensive experience this summer. Join in the fun on June 23 at the Downtown Event Centre (700 Crockett Street) from 9 am-12 pm. Kids will use various materials and their imagination to design inventions and solve problems. This camp will help kids explore and understand the world they live in through a variety of scientific and technological lenses. Camp is hosted by community members and library staff and will cover topics such as music, visual effects, horticulture, engineering, art, physics, and mechanics.  A parent must be present at the program with their child.
