It’s hard to believe it’s already August! Here at Kirkwood Public Library we’ve been enjoying the busy swirl of activity, programs, and patrons participating in the summer reading program, which comes to an end this Saturday, August 8th. Though it may feel like summer is starting to wind down, there are still a lot of fun things to do in Kirkwood in August and September.

Enjoy the last two free Making Music Summer concerts held at the Lions’ Amphitheatre in Kirkwood Park on August 8th, featuring Lucky Old Sons, and the St Louis Wind Symphony on August 22nd. Drop by the library on Monday, August 17th for Adult Board Game Night. Bring a friend or meet some new ones playing classic and new board games. If the weather is still scorching remember the Kirkwood Community Pool is open until September 7th. The library is great stop to cool down at too, stop by just to hang out, use our free wifi or check out a book.

In mid September the circus comes to town with this year’s theme for the 55th Annual Greentree Festival. Bring the whole family out on September 18, 19 and 20 to Kirkwood Park.  On Saturday, September 19 enjoy the Greentree Parade which includes floats, displays and groups from many of the Kirkwood area businesses, organizations and schools. Kirkwood Public Library is excited to partner with the Kirkwood YMCA this year, so be sure to spot our tutus and wave hello! After the parade enjoy of flurry of activities and booths.
