The Summer Reading Program is here!
This year’s Summer Reading Program theme is Every Hero Has A Story! (for those children from age 2 up to those entering 6th grade in the fall). The young adult theme (for those in 7th to 12th grade in the fall) is Unmask. Sign up for both programs began on Tuesday, May 26th and continues on an ongoing basis through Saturday, July 25th. We hope to see you this summer at the public library.
If you’re not familiar with the summer reading program: it’s a FREE reading promotion program that encourages children and young adults to read books of their own choosing (or listen to audio books) throughout the summer. Participants earn weekly incentives and a free book at the end of the program. We also offer many interesting and entertaining FREE weekly programs (you will receive a full calendar of events when you sign up for the summer reading program).
Cheryl Bidwell Story Garden
Don’t forget that the Cheryl Bidwell Story Garden, adjacent to the Berry Room, is a great place for picnics outdoors during the summer. Check out the shapes in the finger tiles along the retaining wall, follow the track/footprint tiles in the grass, or try out the whisper dishes. You can also look for the “fairy houses” in amongst the branches of the trees, or relax and read a book on the butterfly bench. Be creative and enjoy this outdoor place of discovery and imagination.
Juvenile Music CDs
If you’ve been looking for children’s music CDs out in the main part of the library, look no more! They have moved into the Berry Room, to a location adjacent to Berry Room mural.
