I have been busy visiting with the children and teens this month at their schools and some classes have come to the Library to learn about our summer programs and reading clubs. Every child who attends a school in York will receive a red calendar with a parent letter and more information.
All our Library programs are FREE and open to anyone of any age. If you attend summer Library programs with toddlers or preschoolers, please make sure they are accompanied by an adult or a caregiver. Make sure your older child is comfortable being left at a program without you. You may want to stay in the Library during the program and look for an adult book, use our computers or read a magazine or newspaper. Most of our programs last only an hour; however several of the movies run as long as 2 ½ hours, so make sure your child knows what time you will pick them up.
Our summer programs are geared to elementary age children, younger children may tire more easily and you are welcome to leave programs early if your child is restless.
Entering 5th graders and up may join our youth volunteer group, the Junior Friends. These kids help out in the summer in many ways: working the reading club desk, helping out at programs, assisting younger children with crafts, and acting in our summer puppet group. If you have a child interested in joining Junior Friends this summer, please sign them up to attend our Junior Friends Meeting on Wednesday May 27th at 3:00.
Check out all these events at the Library and encourage your child to sign up for summer reading club. We hope to see your family at the Library this summer!
