It’s May – bring on the flowers and the fun!

Calendar of events happening at the Berryville Public Library in May 2024

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.

The heat is here so it is definitely time to get some of those heat-loving plants started and in the ground. Berryville Grows!, our little free seed library, can help! 

We have a variety of pepper, squash (including cucumbers), and melon seeds available for free, while supplies last.  Come in and take what you will plant. 

It’s sure to be fun to see what you can grow and will be even more fun to taste it later this summer!

Looking for free fun for the entire family? We have two family night programs this month.

Family Movie Night will be held on Saturday, May 11, and feature Disney’s animated version of Chicken Little.  A little science fiction, a little comedy, and a little bit of a classic folktale is sure to please all!  Admission to the movie is free, but bring your own comfy seating and snacks.

Family Game Night will be held on Saturday, May 18. For this one, we provide a wide assortment of all sorts of board, dice, and card games for you to choose from as well as free pizza for all players. You just provide the family and the fun!

Adventure will be out there right here for readers of all ages this summer. Sign-ups for the summer reading challenge start on Tuesday, May 28.  These are self-paced and designed to motivate you to keep yourself (and all the kids in your life!) reading this summer.

Special summer programming will start Monday, June 3, with some high-flying adventure, or at least an up-close look at something that can take you real high! Thanks to Clay Maxey Berryville, we will kick off a summer full of adventure with a hot air balloon presentation and stand-up at the Bobcat Soccer Complex. You’ll learn all about what it takes to fly a hot air balloon and see just how big that basket is! The program will start promptly at 8:30 AM. (Hot air balloons don’t like the heat or the wind of the day!)

And the Friends of the Berryville Library want to help you make it a real summer of adventure in any way you choose.
