ALEXANDRIA, MN — Douglas County Library has been running several family-friendly programs, such as "Story Time on the Courthouse Lawn" and "Beanstack", to encourage local kids to exert their creativity and read more this month.

Beanstack is a competition between kids in various age ranges, while Story Time on The Courthouse Lawn is a laid-back event for kids to listen to a story by Ms. Sarah, the local librarian.

Beanstack started on June 7 and will end on July 31. This week, the program encourages kids to focus on making handicrafts at home with their parents.

In addition to handicrafts, The Hillbilly Silly Science Spectacular on July 28 at 4 p.m. was held in the library's big meeting room. The event showcased an extensive collection of home projects done by the kids. There were demos of volcanoes, canons, optical illusions and other e exciting projects.

Story Time on The Courthouse Lawn started on June 9 and the last storytime was on July 28. The program provided a relaxed environment for the kids to listen to various stories, where kids can sing along, engage with the story and express themselves.
