June '16 As The Page Turns

On Your Mark, Get Set, Join the Summer Library Program -   The library is ready for ages of patrons to participate in the Summer Library Program.  The month of June will be busy with activities.  All youth programs are based on the grade the child was in for the 15-16 school year.  PreK children come to the library on Friday mornings at 10:30 for an hour of fun.  Wednesdays are full of activities with grade 4 and up having programs at 10:30 am and grade K-3 programs at 2:30 pm.  The themes of the library programs this year are physical fitness and games. 
Reading activities for the adults will be at the front counter in the library.  Adults can get in on prizes and activities also.

Firecraker Run - All people that are signed up for the summer library program are encouraged to participate in the Firecracker Color Run July 4th.  The library will be sponsoring a 5k color run to encourage physical fitness that goes along with the summer reading theme of “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read.”  Be watching for more information on this event.

Book of the Month – The book discussion for the  May book, “The One and Only Ivan” by Kathrine Applegate has been rescheduled for June 2nd.  The book of the month for June is “Me Before You.”  This book is coming out in movie format in June and we encourage people to read the book before they see the movie.  The book discussion for the June book is on June 30th.

School my be out- but the library has got this covered.  Summertime is a great time for your child to try a new book or book series.  It is important for children to keep practicing their reading skills.  A great way to encourage them to continue reading through the summer is to choose a book that has had a movie made from it.   After they read the book they can watch the movie.  Ask one of the staff for some book/movie ideas.

To check out all of the summertime activities follow the library on our
Facebook page.  Also, if you are looking to be a little creative, follow us on Pinterest.  We have many boredom buster boards. 

Our hours are, M & Th – 10-7, Tu, W, F – 10-5 and Sat. 10-2.  The library is closed on Sundays.
