Library Hack #17: 3 Free and Easy Ways to Entertain the Kids!

Trying to find a free, yet fun, way to entertain the kids? Look no further than Summer Reading at your local library.

WCLS offers tons of books and materials for them to enjoy, along with children’s programs, play areas, and free video games!

Here are our top three picks for entertaining the kids:

1. Summer Reading Bingo

The whole family (even the baby) can join in the fun. It’s all kinds of easy!  Kids set their own goals and get to pick out a brand new book to keep when they’re done. And it’s free!

Get your Summer Reading bingo card  or visit one of our 11 locations today and READ!


2. Children’s Programs

Choose from storytimes, LEGO Club, scavenger hunts, and even “Llamas at the Library” (yes, this event features real llamas). It’s all part of Summer Reading. We offer programs for young kids (birth to 5), kids (6-12), and teens (13-18).

Check out our easy-to-use calendarfor all upcoming events and programs!

3. Free Video Games

200 of the latest video games for Xbox one, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and more.

Not only are video games fun, but checking them out from the library can also save you a considerable amount of money.

The average video game costs $60 and renting them costs about $14 a week, but with your WCLS card, you get them for free!
