Emily Jane talks coquina to kids in Hastings
Summertime is one of our favorite times of the year because it means spending some quality time at the library! But we're not just there to find a good book -- we're there to talk about archaeology!

Every year, the public library systems participate in a Collaborative Summer Library Program that involve fun and educational activities and a reading challenge. For the past few years, FPAN has been invited to numerous local libraries across the state as well as summer camps and other programs.

This year alone, we provided outreach to over 1,100 people throughout our Northeast and East Central regions! These programs have included events at libraries for kids and adults, visits to summer camps and YMCA events.

That's a lot of outreach!

While this summer is winding down, we do have some great workshops and events in the plans for the fall.

If you're interested in scheduling programming, please check out our website for a list of options and to fill out a program request form: Northeast or East Central.
