Summer Reading 2016: “On Your Mark, Get Set… Read!”

This year’s Summer Reading Program theme is On Your Mark, Get Set… Read! We will explore sports, games, and movement through books, activities, art projects, and more, with the first week’s activities focusing on being a team player. Every child, whether a sports fan or not, is sure to enjoy this summer’s program.

The Summer Reading Program runs during the months of June and July. Children and teens may complete reading logs to win participant prizes. There will also be activities for all ages. Tuesdays at 2 pm will be “Teen Tuesdays,” with varied activites for teens. Wednesdays at 10 am, younger children can enjoy Family Storytime, with stories, songs, finger plays, and music. Thursdays at 2 pm, the library will offer crafts for all ages. Each week will end with a Friday family flick at 1 pm, complete with popcorn and drink, and some take-home activities!

Adults are also invited to enjoy Summer Reading with Exercise Your Mind: Read! Adults may turn in an entry form for every book read. Each Monday, a random drawing will be held for prizes. Top adult readers will be awarded grand prizes at the end of the program.

Additional events will be held throughout the program, including movie screenings and guest speaker visits, so further announcements will be forthcoming!
