After School Clubs

We are currently not running any in-person children’s programs at this time due to COVID-19.

The Conrad Public Library is working with the Cowboy Academy to host many of our programs.  Specifically, after school clubs are held in conjunction with the Cowboy Academy's after school program.  Parents may complete a registration form once for the Cowboy Academy and call the library to enroll their child in a club.  Our clubs are partially funded by the Cowboy Academy that receives money from the 21st Century grant through the US Department of Education.  This grant supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for school-aged children.  The Conrad Public Library is passionate about providing beneficial programs that complement regular academics.
