Summer Reading Party!

On July 27, 20 readers participated in the summer reading party. The children enjoyed playing Minute to Win It games. They played Popcorn Relay, Junk in a Trunk, Suck It Up using a marshmallow and straw, Solo cup Tower, and Cookie Face. They also feasted on hotdogs, chips, gatorade or lemonade, and “build your own” ice cream sundae. The party concluded with drawings for Bingo Blackouts and participating in the summer reading program.

RSVP Needed!

On July 27, the Elgin Public Library will be having our Summer Reading party. Anyone who participated in the Bingo Summer Reading activity, Story time, or Activity time are invited to attend this party. It will be held at the library at 5:00. Come for a good time of games and food. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by July 24, 2017. This is important so we can make sure we have enough food for everyone.

Robots!

On July 13, the library had their last activity time for the summer. Krystal Carr read the story, The Fix-It Man to 10 children. After the story they had the opportunity to see what it was like to be an engineer. Using legos and a computer, they worked together to accomplish a goal of making a robot and getting it to move. Thank you Krystal for the fun activities this summer.

Clowning Around!

On July 10, Janie Score entertained the children with the book, Sweet Dreams, Clown-Around! The story is about the Clown-Around family and their busy and exciting day. The children then dressed up like clowns with a collar they colored, a hat, and finally a big red nose. While dressed up like clowns they played some games and also were treated with some clown toys that Janie Score’s children used to play with.
