The Summer Reading Program “Build a Better World” began on May 18th. For this challenge children are encouraged to keep track of their time for ages Preschool thru 5th grade and then for each hour they complete they will write their name on a block. Once a week, your child will report their time and we will trim off their blocks read and add them on our reading wall. Time is also counted when parents, siblings, etc. are reading to the child. For ages 6th thru 12th, they will be challenged to read a certain number of books and complete a BINGO sheet with various activities. Each block represents one hour and is one entry into the weekly prize drawing. Then after each week those winners or not will be dumped into our bigger jar to be drawn at the end of our program for some awesome prizes. For the 6th thru 12th grade; each week they report a book read they will be entered into the weekly drawings and then later added to the end of summer drawing.
Adult book challenge began on May 18th and will continue until July 21st. Stop in the library to sign up.
Each Thursday from 1:30pm to 3:00pm come and help with various community service projects. It is open to all ages but however children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent. Come with a good attitude and a willingness to help!
