Comedian/magician Spikey Mikey is performing at the Driscoll Public Library on Thursday, June 14. All library programming is free.

This year’s summer reading challenge begins on Friday, June 1 and logs may be picked up at the circulation desk in the library. This year all logs will be time based and will require that kids read 300 minutes (5 hrs) per log. With each completed log they will receive a raffle ticket to be placed in the raffle for a prize they want to win. Prize packages will be on display in the library beginning June 1.
This year the reading challenge will be divided into 3 levels, with medals being given for each level completed. The first level requires the completion of 3 logs (15 hrs of reading), the second level requires the completion of 5 logs (25 hrs of reading) and the third level requires the completion of 8 logs (40 hrs of reading). The readers will have 8 weeks to complete all levels.
Programming opens on Wednesday, June 13 with a movie matinee featuring Ferdinand (PG, 108 min) – Ferdinand is a young bull who escapes from a training camp in rural Spain after his father never returns from a showdown with a matador. Adopted by a girl who lives on a farm, Ferdinand’s peaceful existence comes crashing down when the authorities return him to his former captors. With help from a wisecracking goat and three hedgehogs, the giant but gentle bovine must find a way to break free before he squares off against El Primero, the famous bullfighter who never loses.
