Party In the Park!


Get ready to party your way into summer reading with the first event of our Kids Summer Series, a collaboration between Yankton Community Library and the Yankton Parks and Recreation Department!

On Monday, June 3rd from 4:30-7:30 pm, join us in Memorial Park for a family-friendly night of fun where there is something for everyone! The 605 Magic Art Bus will have arts, crafts, and activities for kids to enjoy throughout the night. Meyer Petting Zoo will have your favorite farm friends around for you to pet and interact with. The main event of the night will take place at 6 pm when Wildlife Encounters take center stage with their exotic animal show.

You can also explore the National Parks Mobile Ranger Station and Gavins Point National Fish Hatchery exhibit, or learn to play disc golf and pickleball! Music throughout the night provided by DJ Todd Carr. Plus, get a chance to visit with a special cemetery walk reenactor and purchase a 50/50 raffle ticket from the Friends of the Library.

Everyone is invited to come and register for summer reading at the event and pick up their registration packets to receive a coupon for a free sweet treat to be redeemed that night at either the Runza food truck or the Donut Department! Don’t forget the library has summer reading programs for teens and adults, too! To register for the Summer Reading Program from home, just go to or download the Beanstack app.

If you need additional accommodation to participate in this event, please contact the library.
