The library will be open late this Friday (1630-1800) with special hours just for kids to celebrate the kickoff of our Summer Reading program!
We're going to have snacks, stories, puppets and prizes. Pick up a Summer Reading Kit, get a library card, take in a puppet show, and enjoy the fun!
And here to endorse our Summer Reading program is our friendly neighborhood Skeleton-Pirate, whom we'll be naming at the Kickoff Party! He's available in the lobby most days for photographs and advice.
"Summer reading is a great opportunity for parents and children alike to read for pleasure, to explore new genres and authors, and to remember the joy of a hot summer day and a good book. It also helps kids retain valuable reading and critical thinking skills over the summer months and allows parents the opportunity to set a good example that says reading is a pleasurable and important every-day activity.
"The summer reading program is a great way to infuse learning with fun, explore new activities, allow kids to show off their imagination and creativity, and to turn reading into a social activity!
"Also, we have prizes and cake. Yarr"
So join in the fun and help Skeleton-Pirate find a name, starting this Friday at 4:30 PM!
