By mid-July it is likely the “I’m bored” whines have come into a full swing. Children lacking school hours and structure are sitting at home, bored with friends, video games, reading … even the chore list is getting thin.

So what can the kids do this summer? The Lower Providence Community Library (LPCL) has tons of answers for any family.

Take a look at this week’s calendar alone. It is not unusual to have a jam-packed week of fun going on at the location, housed at 50 Parklane Drive, next to the township building.

Additionally, the library is sponsoring a summer reading club through Aug. 8. Children ages 0 to 17 can participate. By logging into the website here, parents can help children track hours spent reading. For each two hours, children can stop into the library for a prize.

No matter the date, there is plenty for the kids to do at the library. For more information on programs, click the LPCL’s Children page here or call 610-666-6640.
