SUMMER READING 2017 !

 Summer Reading Calendar.                   Event Registration Link

 

Summer reading is here – and it’s a fun time for the whole family!!!   Some questions we often hear:

This is just for kids, right?  WRONG – it’s for all ages, 0-180! 

Do I have to read only books checked out from the library?  NO – everything you read counts.  Naturally, we love when you check out our books, but all books count.  

I only read to my kids, I don’t have time to read for myself.  OK – everything you read to your kids counts for the adults too!  Kids reading to their siblings get to count those books as well!  We LOVE reading aloud –  please read to others every day, and count what you read! 

Now that you know it’s the easiest program around, come in and sign up! Prizes await .. fun programs await …. smiling faces everywhere await!

 This year’s theme for summer is BUILD A BETTER WORLD!

There are over 162 programs this year.  Check out the Calendar!  Enjoy and celebrate, play, relax and read!

 

Some basic explanations:
Mondays:  Crafts:  Come, make and take, four different crafts.  We explore a variety of media – paint, color, food, clay, beading, glitter, glue.  You name it, we do it.  Your job is to have fun doing it, our job is to clean up the mess!   It’s a win-win!

Tuesdays:  Programs.   We are the place to be on Tuesdays at 10:30!  Some of our favorites are returning this year, along with some new, LOUD, and exciting programs!    Scrabble Club – is open to the public.  Twelve and older please.

Wednesdays:   Tiny Tots  (ages 0-3).   A great time for young ones to celebrate all forms of literacy in their young world.  Always a surprise or two!   Movie time:  for all ages; fun family films to kick back and relax to.  Snacks provided.

Thursdays:  Story time for all ages.  Come read, sing and participate in the fun!  Our first and second story times will be at the library.  All other Thursday story times will be held at THE DEPOT !  (Lion’s Park)

Fridays:  Fun Fridays —- something fun and full of surprises!

Weekends and Friday/Saturday nights:  occasional activities –  Teens are slated for a  Grand Murder Mystery!    Our fun summer lock in is held in July and the Teddy Bear Lock In is sure to put a smile on your young one’s face.  We just wish those stuffed animals would behave!!!!!    They really get crazy at 3 am!

There are many afternoon “camps” and workshops that you can sign up for.  Preregistration is required for these events due to space limitations, but there are many camps and if enough are on waiting lists, sessions will be added if at all possible.

The LOCK-IN is July 15th.  Sign up starts June 26th!
