Reading Can Take You Anywhere!

  By Jan Pease

Mark your calendars! Synchronize your watches! It’s almost time for summer  programs at the library!

The theme for 2018’s summer reading program is “Reading Takes you Everywhere.” Protect your students from summer slide this summer by taking advantage of free programming at the library. Beginning June first, young people read or keep track of various activities.  Every time all the hexagons on the reading game are filled in, bring the reading game in and receive a reward.  Participants can pick up more reading  and activity game sheets and continue through August 31st.

Children and Teens may register to participate beginning June 1st, but registration can happen throughout the summer.

Regularly scheduled library programs include:

Teen Gaming Night, offered the 1st Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m.

Maker Space, offered on the 2nd Mondays, 3:30, for ages 12 and up. 
Toddler Time, Wednesdays, 10:15, for babies and toddlers accompanied by a caregiver.  

 Beginner Book Club, offered the 3rd Thursday of every month at 3:00 for children in grades 1-3.  Children going into 1st grade are welcome if they can read.

 Brickheads, every Thursday night at 6:30, for ages 4-14

 Preschool Story Hour, every Friday at 10:00  for children 3-5 years old.  Children who have finished kindergarten are always welcome.
