Darien Library will celebrate the efforts of young readers during its Summer Reading Finale Party on Monday, Aug. 17, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the library courtyard. Revelers will play Giant Jenga and Giant Connect Four, participate in Red Carpet interviews, indulge in mini hotdogs and hamburgers from the local Bounty Food Truck, and dance to kid-friendly music. Winners of the Grand Prize Raffle and Creative Challenge winners will be announced, and the paparazzi may be present, so partygoers are encouraged to dress like the stars.

Online registration for this event can be found on darienlibrary.org/kids. Registration is limited to children ages 6 to 12.

Younger children can celebrate the end of summer with the band Funkytown Playground on Friday, Aug. 14 from 11 to 11:45 a.m. This event is open to all ages, no registration necessary.
