Westlake Porter Public Library and Westlake City Schools are partnering to present an interactive summer learning series for students entering Grades1-6. Called “Summer Brain Games,” the series will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from June 11 through August 22, excluding breaks for the week of July 4 and Science Week (August 4-10).
All sessions will be held at the library and prepared and run by staff from the Westlake City Schools with the help of volunteers. There will be a choice of four activity stations, including Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies. Activities and Workshops will include content appropriate for each grade. Activities will change each week, but will be the same on the Tuesday and Thursday of the same week. Four Workshops will also be offered: Reading Buddies, Readers’ Theater, Brown Bag Theater and Young Authors.
For more information on the workshops please contact Nick Miller at MillerNi [at] wlake.org.

More than 300,000 Ohioans served in the Union Army from 1861-65. In this talk you will hear first hand from one of them about leaving home for the army—about camp life, the fury of battle and more. In this first-person portrayal, learn what soldiers ate, how they coped with the cold and heat and how they made it through four years of marching and fighting.
Presented by Mark Holbrook of the Ohio Humanities Council Speakers Bureau.
