-Read to young children daily.
-Read a chapter book to your school-age children by reading aloud one or two chapters every day.
*An easy time of day to sneak some quality reading time in is right before bedtime*
-Encourage your children to spend time reading and looking at books. (Long car rides on vacation trips are a great time to encourage young readers.)
– Talk with your children about what they are reading.
-Ask your library about programs for children. Get them signed up and make it a part of your weekly goals to stop in and take part!
You are invited to Fizz, Boom, Read! at the Loup City Public Library’s 2014 Summer Library Program. Starts June 3rd and will through August 2nd!
How the program works:
1. Children ages preK-12th grade can register for the program.
2. You’ll receive a logbook to record the titles of the books your read this summer.
3. Take an AR test after you read the book (or for those of you who can’t read yet, your caregiver can read the questions to you) to earn points.
PreK-6th Grade: every 5pts. earned is $1 in chamber bucks.
7th-12th Grade: every 10pts. earned is $1 in chamber bucks. Earn up to $10 in chamber bucks.
4. We’ll be offering a variety of programs, giveaways, and incentives along the way. So drop in as often as possible and check our Facebook page, website, or look in the Sherman Co Times.
5. Every Tuesday morning at 10 am beginning June 3rd, come on in to StoryTime at the library! Volunteers Sydney Wardyn and Heather Harrison will be reading to and working with the children on a craft.
Volunteers Heather Harrison and Sydney Wardyn will be reading to the children of the community at 10 am every Tuesday throughout the summer!
After a story is read, the kids will participate in making a craft and can color as well. Parents can help their children or can feel free to browse the shelves for books of their own.
The Summer Reading Program will begin June 3rd and will go through August 2nd as well.
Hope everyone is enjoying their first few days of freedom!
Congratulations on completing another year of school kids! Parents – congratulations on surviving another year of school. With the school year behind us, we are all going to be getting into a whole new routine for these upcoming summer months. With this in mind, we moved up the start of our summer hours to begin the first full week after school is out. May 19th is the start of the new schedule.
The library will now be closed Sunday AND Monday.
Tuesdays will be longer, with morning hours. 9am-1pm and 2pm-6pm.
Wednesdays remain the same, 2pm-8pm.
Thursdays and Fridays also remain the same, 2pm-6pm.
Saturdays remain the same with hours from 2pm-5pm.
The computer rule for the children will take affect after this week. Beginning with the summer schedule, the children will only be allowed one hour per child per day. Exceptions will be made to those working on a project.
We look forward to seeing you!
