Help the Library kickoff a summer of reading, music, entertaining programs, and community with the Library's fourth annual Kickoff to Summer Fun event. The festivities will include music and an ice cream social on the Library's terrace and scavenger hunts throughout the building for every age group. 

To make the party even livelier, Library staff members invite attendees to play Soak the Staff. By completing the scavenger hunt or making a small donation to the Foundation for Geneva Public Library, players receive three chances to dump buckets of water on the heads of Library staff members. More adventurous guests can volunteer to get soaked themselves!

The Kickoff to Summer Fun is brought to you by Wegman's, the Friends of the Geneva Public Library, the Foundation for Geneva Public Library, and the Pioneer Library System. Volunteers are needed to assist with the festivities as ice cream servers and scavenger hunt coordinators. If you are interested in helping, please contact Library Director Chris Finger at 315-789-5303, ext.106 or by email at cfinger@pls-net.org.
