Our Summer Reading Program is here! Make plans for your student in grades K-6 to be at the library every Thursday afternoon through July 22. For your convenience, we’ll gather at 1:30 p.m., and again at 3:30 p.m, so if you miss the early show, then hopefully you can make it later. For this week’s activities we’ll bring the beach to the library (in a way)! We’ll make sand castles, challenge each other to limbo (how low can you go), throw Frisbees, play with hula hoops, toss around a hacky sack, and bounce beach balls! Kids should wear clothes that they'd wear to play in the sand. While we will have some items for sharing, you should bring sand buckets and shovels, hula hoops, frisbees, whatever you’d like to play Encourage your child to read this summer; check out books about fish, the ocean, beach vacations, and sailing. Show them reading can be fun! Free!
