Summer is here!

June 7, 2013

Categories: Books and Gifts, Events

Summer is here! Relaxing might mean something different for everyone in your family. We have something in store for everyone this summer at the Billy Graham Library.

Ruth’s Attic Bookstore has lots of treasures for mom – from books and Bibles, to apparel and jewelry. Bring your girlfriends for a morning trip and reflect in the Prayer Garden for a quiet Bible study.

Is it too hot for dad to stand over the grill? Give him the afternoon off and come to the Graham Brother’s Dairy Bar for BBQ, hot dogs and a milkshake. The whole family can relax on the patio and visit the Graham Family Homeplace to see where Billy and his siblings ate their meals.

Kids can check out Bessie’s Brainteasers while parents are on the Journey of Faith tour, pick up a stuffed animal at the store and cap off the trip with a soft-serve ice cream cone.

Are your teens complaining of nothing to do? The Billy Graham Library is a great place for them to volunteer. They can gain learning experience while encouraging visitors from around the world.
