June 2021 Children’s Department Newsletter 

Hello! As some of you may know, Ms. Molly Briggs has taken a break this summer but as of now plans to return in the fall. My name is Destiny Drebes and I will be taking over the youth services at the library for the summer! Just so you know a little bit about me, I have been married for a little over a year and currently reside in Hannibal. I am also a student at Hannibal-LaGrange University studying Psychology. I have had a lot of experiences working with children and young adults of all ages through work and volunteer services. 

I am very excited for this year’s summer reading program and hope that all of you are as well! Make sure to mark your calendars for June 7th, as that is when sign ups begin. However, we are still allowing sign ups throughout the entire program. We are welcoming attendants into our library for exploration days as well that follow along with our theme of animals! Each week we switch age groups however, if you have kids not in the same age group, please do not fret! We will allow them into the exploration day activities as well if needed. As of now, space for attendance is limited so please make sure to sign up before coming! You may do so by calling the library or you may also email me at You can also use this to send any questions or you can reach me by calling the library. 

Please refer to the calendar included in this email, as well as our social media, for updates on everything going on this summer. We are looking forward to a wonderful summer full of reading and fun!

Thank you for being great patrons!
