Are you a Superhero? Come explore the possibilities this summer with the Florence Community Library’s 2015 Summer Reading Program!
Registration begins Tuesday, May 27. Families and their caregivers are strongly encouraged to come to the library and register their children and teens for the Reading Club, and weekly program activities. Upon registration, participants receive their own reading bags and reading logs. Be a ‘hero,’ fill those book bags with all of your favorite books; complete your reading logs; and ‘Unmask’ prize incentives. ‘Top Readers’ in the children’s and teen’s category receive gift bags and some very nice books at the conclusion of summer reading.
Summer Reading runs through the month of June. There is a series of summer activities and events for all ages. Learn ‘How to be a Hero’ on Mondays by picking up a Trivia Handout sheet available at the front desk; complete the sheet and return it the following week for a fun incentive. Teens can ‘Choose their own Path’ on Teen Tuesdays at 2:00 pm; Wednesdays at 10:00 am, children of all ages will be amazed at the ‘Tall Tales,’ presented by Children’s Librarian Ms. Rita, along with outstanding ‘Community Heroes.’ They will share stories, music, finger plays, dance, and snacks.
Enjoy a variety of ‘Superhero’ Crafts for children of all ages Thursdays at 2:00 pm. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to assist younger children. Registration is required for crafts, although walk-ins are accepted on a space available basis. Each week ends with a Friday ‘Family Flick,’ complete with popcorn and drink! A family movie is shown in the library programming room each Friday at 1:00 pm, with seats available on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of licensing restrictions, titles are unavailable to the media or through the library’s website. Patrons may call (520) 868-8311 or visit the library for title information. Movies are subject to change.
Limited seating is available. All programs are free of charge. Please call the library for more information (520) 868-8311.
Reading throughout the summer benefits students; it helps them retain skills learned during the school year. So, gather up all of your ‘Superhero!’ strength and we’ll see you in June.
