Summer at the Library

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

We invite children of all ages to play, learn, meet new people, and read for fun at the library this summer.

When kids choose their own reading, they enjoy reading more, and when reading is fun, they become better readers. Our Summer Reading Program includes a game board and encourages reading in any and all areas. Youth Services staff are always happy to help kids find books that match their interests. (By the way, the SRP isn’t just for readers; pre-readers can participate by listening while family or friends do the reading.)

Besides the books, we’ve got lots of events and activities that include music, crafts, science and more, many with a multicultural theme. Be sure to check the Calendar for Kids often!   PJ

Olga Pastuchiv, by the way, is the same artist who has been creating those wonderful little paintings you may have seen around the library…

Josie the “Read-to-Me” Dog

Fred Stong’s trained Read-to-Me dog, Josie, enjoys another weekly session at the library with Sam.

Reading to a dog is a great way for kids to stay motivated while their reading improves!
