Hickory Public Library will offer summer learning programs for all ages June 1 through August 15, 2021. The 2021 theme “Tails & Tales” encourages us all to experience the joy of learning and reading with stories about animal friends, both real and imagined. Reading relieves stress, strengthens the brain, and builds empathy. Learn new things or expand your knowledge of current interests this summer for free with library materials and library programs. Check back in May 2021 for event calendars and reading program details.
