Now that school is out kids can start participating in the Summer Reading Program. Our Summer Reading Programs will officially kick off Monday June 3, 2019. But kids can start reading anytime. We have fun programs and events for children of all ages. Children who participate in the summer reading program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed. The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program is A Universe of Stories. Weekly themes will range from planets and astronauts to aliens and robots. We have a planetarium coming on Tuesday July 2nd from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For every two hours read, kids will be able to enter their name into our Summer Reading prize drawings. There will also be small prizes awarded for every two hour entry. Pre-readers are encouraged to participate by having someone read to them. The top reader will win an after-hours pizza party. We will have computers available for taking Accelerated Reader tests.
Activities for the summer will be Movie Mondays at 1:30 p.m. This will be a family friendly movie and everyone is welcome to attend. Storytime for children ages 5 and under will be Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. The Summer Reading Program will be Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 for all ages. Wednesdays will be Middle School Hangout for kids entering grades 6 through 8 at 1:30 p.m. Thursdays will be LEGO Club/STEM Club at 1:30 p.m. for grades K through 6. Older kids interested in LEGO Club and STEM Club are welcome to attend as are PreK children if accompanied by an adult.
We are starting a new program this summer called Books and Babies which will be Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m. This program is designed for building language, motor, and social skills for babies and their mommies. The first program will be Friday June 7th at 10:30 a.m. and coffee will be served!
