PHOENIX – Ah, summer, the instigator of boredom for people of all ages. Your local library is working to change that with all kinds of programs for all age groups.

“You might be surprised what is happening among the stacks of your local library,” said Secretary of State Michele Reagan whose office oversees the Arizona State Library. “From coloring groups to computer classes, the library has something for everyone.”  

Programs library users might expect, like how to use an eReader, storytime for preschoolers and summer reading, are being joined by science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. Some examples of new programs are children’s computer coding club classes, computer classes for adults, video game design, and virtual reality viewing experiences.

Check out the local library for programs. Library locations can be found on the Arizona State Library website,

The Arizona State Library is a division of the Secretary of State.
