All the libraries of the Lee County Library System offer a large and varied selection of programs, classes and activities for people of all ages throughout the year.
During the summer, the system offers the Summer Reading Program and activities for children and teens that include games like chess and Wii, magic, juggling, balloon, pirate, music and animal shows.
The programs are free, but tickets are required unless otherwise indicated on the e-calendar at: leelibrary.net. It is best to pick up free tickets at the library beforehand.
Adult programs include free computer, budgeting, coupon, car care, craft, scrapbooking, chess, foreign films, photography, genealogy and literacy programs, as well as author presentations and book and poetry discussions to name a few.
"If you don't find a program you are interested in you can always suggest a program to your neighborhood library," Sheldon Kaye, Lee County Library System director, said. "These programs truly enrich the community. Whether the programs are for fun or for educational purposes the programs are entertaining and are offered all throughout the year."
All programs are free and open to the public. A sign language interpreter is available with five business days notice to library staff.
