It’s Story Hour Season Again!

StorytimeJoin us for story hour again on Mondays starting at 10:30 am.  The kickoff will be Monday, September 14th.  Jen Wallender will lead storytime again with each session featuring stories, rhymes, maybe a song, some movement and a craft.  It’s a great place to meet other parents and children and socialize…make new friends!  All children are welcome! Moms and dads are asked to stay with their children during storytime in case their attention span can’t quite last through the activity.  Reading to children at a young age is so very important and storytime is just one more opportunity your library offers our children for early literacy.  We hope you are able to enjoy some time here at the library!

Another Successful Summer Reading Program!

Serenity HernandezCain Doppler

We are SO proud of our Hazen readers!  Last week I wasn’t sure if we were going to achieve our goal of beating the minutes read by our children over the summer but the kids came through in a big way! Last year’s totals were 64,350 minutes or 1,072.5 hours – this year’s total are 66,960 minutes or 1116 hours read by the children throughout the summer!    As I said, we are so very proud of our kids.  We hope they continue reading throughout the school year…and remember to use our online resources and library for homework help throughout the school year.  If you need more info about the resources or if we can help your student, please call us.  The winner of the Kindle is Serenity Hernandez and the winner of the iPod is Cain Doppler. Congratulations to both of them – they were in the library several times a week getting new books to read!

Summer Reading Program Ends August 21st

Our kids have about 2 more weeks to return their reading logs for the summer reading program.  They can return a log each day after reading for 90 minutes.  This summer our children have read more than 58,000 minutes so far!! Amazing! This should help them as they start a new year in school.  The winners of the drawing for the Kindle and iPod will be announced Monday, August 24th. The more logs they turn in, the better their chances of winning!
