MEDINA – Summer Reading has kicked off at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library. We had 300 kids today learning all about rocks and minerals, sluicing their gem bags, and painting river rocks.

Attendees also got to play Twister, Connect 4, yard checkers, and cornhole. While kids were enjoying the fun outside, adults were able to meet with representatives from National Grid, LifeSpan, Office for the Aging, NYSEG, AMPED, Maxim, UConnect Care, Veterans One Stop, and the Department of Public Services.

Ruff Rock Mining was at Lee-Whedon and people tried to unearth gemstones.

We have so many great events scheduled for the summer and we have plenty of activities you can do with your family. Borrow an Empire Pass for free entry to a New York State Park or borrow one of our family passes to the Rochester Museum and Science Center. Make sure to grab a Library Adventure Map and get a sticker for each library in Nioga Library System you visit. Get one of our Discovery Kits and go bird watching or geocaching.

Remember, your public library is the gateway to great adventures!

These representatives from agencies and organizations were available to meet with the public inside the library.
