Rowan Public Library hosts fair promoting local summer fun
SALISBURY — Families seeking extracurricular activities for students this summer can attend the free Summer Fun Fair hosted by Rowan Public Library.
Representatives of local summer programs will be on hand from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Stanback Auditorium at the Headquarters library, 201 W. Fisher St.
Summer Fun Fair is free and open to the public. Caregivers and families can interact with local organizations that will provide summer camps, internships and volunteer opportunities. No registration is required.
“Local community summer camp organizations are excited to have an opportunity to meet prospective families seeking summer activities,” said Amber Covington, headquarters librarian and organizer of the fair. “Currently, our community does not offer a place for summer camp providers to share their information and the library is fulfilling this community need.”
Information will include materials on local summer camps focusing on aviation, athletics, history, music, dance, church, science and technology programs.
“I humbly appreciate all the library is doing to promote our offerings for youth,” says Sherie Neely, program manager and Summer Enrichment director at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
Several local businesses and organizations have agreed to take part, including ASCEND Aviation Summer Camp: Exploring New Dimensions; Central Carolina Gymnastics; Girl Scouts of Hornets’ Nest Council; Davidson County Community College summer camp; JLT Fieldhouse Inc.; Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Summer Enrichment Programs; Rowan County 4-H; Rowan Museum; Rowan Wild; St. Luke’s Episcopal Church children’s and youth ministries; Salisbury High STEM Camp; Salisbury Parks and Recreation; STEM camps at Pfeiffer University; Steppin’ Out Dance Company; Salisbury Symphony Summer String Camp; and Triple Threat Dance Studio.
