August Program Calendar


Posted on August 1, 2022

The dog days of summer are upon us. Slower times at the library to allow for everyone to have plenty of time to get ready for a great year at school and some fun days at the County Fair!

Need more information about any of these programs or any of the services the library provides? Contact us via phone, Facebook, Instagram, email, or in person.

Power up for school!

It’s the perfect time to switch gears and turn your brain from summer to school. Arkansas PBS and the Berryville Library can help! Arkansas PBS has produced a series of Rise and Shine Summer Learning Power Packets that are available to pick up at the library all month long. These free activity workbooks are full of fun challenges in math, literacy, science, and social studies for students going into grades K-5 to tackle on their own or with the help of a parent or older sibling. They also contain ideas of easy and fun ways parents can reinforce key concepts in these subject areas with their young learners even after school has begun. Make it a point to complete a packet each week in August or make this week all about math, the next literacy, and so on.

Prepare for the fair…

It’s not too late to think about entering the fair. County fair books will be hot off the presses (and available at the library) real soon. Meanwhile, visit the Carroll County Fair & Rodeo website for a full schedule of planned events. There is also a listing of all categories in the Creative Arts for which they are accepting entries along with all the rules. Putting yourself out there and placing an entry into the fair is a fun way to end the summer. There is also plenty of family fun at the fair starting with the horse show on August 19, and the Fair Parade at 10 AM on Saturday, August 20. Say an official good-bye to summer with flair by making it a point to enjoy this year’s fair!

Programs are not all we offer.

While our calendar is usually stock full of special programs and events for all ages, programs are not all we do at the library. We have lots of services we always make available for people, all year long.

  • Genealogy your thing? Check out the library’s subscriptions to HeritageQuest and Ancestry.com. (You have to come into the library to use Ancestry, but you can use HeritageQuest at home just by entering you library card number!)
  • Need a legal form? We have a free resource for that in Gale Legal Forms.
  • Need to learn how to use Word, Excel, or Publisher (or about any of the database resources linked above)? Niche Academy is for you (and also free). (Click the TUTORIALS tab hanging vertically on the right side of your screen).
  • Have a young driver that needs to pass the permit test? Here are some free practice tests they can take!
  • Ready to tackle learning a new language? Mango Languages is for you!

This is just a start. If you have a question or are ever having trouble finding a resource you want or need, think about stopping by the library. We are here to help!
