Our kids have read 22,500 minutes so far this summer! That’s a little over a third of the way to our goal of 63,000 minutes during this Summer Reading Program season. Let’s keep our kids reading this summer so there won’t be a drop in their reading skills when they get back to school in the fall. Besides, reading helps expand their imaginations and spark creativity! We don’t care if they are reading a newspaper, the cereal boxes at breakfast, comic books, or the new Harry Potter that’s about to be released, we just want our kids to be the best readers possible! So let’s keep encouraging them to read!
Hey Everyone – It’s that time of year again! Summer Reading Program Sign-up begins Tuesday, May 31st. We will be sending things home with the students listing the dates and times of the special events lined up for this summer so be on the lookout for a bookmark in their backpacks!
Thursday, April 7th, at 6:30pm we will be putting on our creative hats and trying our hands at coloring again. Come on over and try some new techniques. If you want to bring along your own things and just come and join the group, you are welcome. Otherwise, you need not bring any supplies…we will supply all you need. The only thing you need bring is your favorite beverage! Bring your friends or make some new friends…come and join in the fun!
The Library and Friends of the Library will be hosting our annual Easter Egg Hunt Monday, March 28th, beginning at 3 pm. Please have your children here by 2:55–the hunt takes about 5 minutes for the eggs to be gathered and we would surely hate to have the kids be late and miss out on any treats. We ask that you open the eggs here and leave the empty eggs here so we can re-use them again for next year’s hunt.
The library will be closed Good Friday, March 25th, for the Easter holiday.
