Summer is hard on kids. So many times they have nothing to do so they fill their days and nights with video games and cell phones. If you want to pry those electronics out of your kids hands, take them to the library. There are over a dozen public libraries throughout El Paso and they have a lot to offer. They have summer reading lists available for all grade levels, story time for the little ones, a quilting bee at the Memorial Park branch, and even open video gaming a the Main library downtown. I know that sounds like it defeats the purpose, but if you can get a kid to a library, chances are they'll find something other than electronics to hold their attention.

Each branch offers different classes and programs. Just click on the branch closest to you, or check out all the branches to see what is being offered this summer. You can get more information about the El Paso Public Library branches by clicking here.
