Summer Spark, the library’s summer learning program, runs through August 31. Along with reading and activity challenges and special family programs, children ages 7-11 are invited to drop-in at free Spark! Camps. They can explore art projects at Rondo and Merriam Park and STEM hands-on building activities at Highland Park. For more information, visit or stop by the library for a Summer Spark brochure with the full calendar of events.
The library also offers creative outlets for adults. George Latimer Central Library is home to SPPL’s Innovation Lab, where adults can sign up for a free membership. Membership includes access to a variety of equipment and software including a laser engraver, vinyl cutter, digitization tools (transfer from VHS to DVD, etc.), 3D printers, MacBooks, sewing machines, a recording studio, and more. New Member Orientation is required before use of Lab equipment. Learn more at
