Local author, Sara DeLuca, will present a program on family memories at the Deer Park Public Library at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday June 27.
DeLuca is the author of two books published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press, including "Dancing the Cows Home: A Wisconsin Girlhood" and "The Crops Look Good: News from a Midwestern Family Farm." She will be reading from her books and discussing the importance of recording family memories.
DeLuca's program is the beginning of the Build A Better World summer reading program at the Deer Park Public Library; as well as a celebration of the 20 years that the Deer Park Public Library has been in its present building. Appreciating history and family memories are an important part of building a better world.
A memorabilia table of items from the Deer Park History Corner will be on display as part of the celebration. If you have items and memories from the Deer Park and Cylon areas, share them during the week of June 27. This 20-year celebration leads up to the Deer Park Community 4th of July celebration on Friday, June 30, and Saturday, July 1.
During July, Deer Park Public Library's summer reading program will include programs on Bicycle & ATV Safety; Reduce, Reuse & Recycle; Electrical Safety & Alternative Energy Sources; Rocks & Minerals Collecting; Let's Create Using Wood Scraps; and What Does It Mean When You Hear Local Foods? Friday Story Time continues throughout the summer.
