Summer Reading Celebration!

This is, sadly, the last week of our Summer Reading Program.  Before you go back to school though, join us for our Summer Reading Celebration this week!

14 summer celebration2

If you participated in the Reading Program, you can drop in on Wednesday (that’s tomorrow!) anytime between 5:00 and 8:00 for ice cream…and you pick the toppings!  Pick out a book for your final summer prize, discover how many books you read as a group, see your name on our Summer Reading Scroll and find out who won the Guessing Jars!

The party has a slightly later start time this year, so take note.

If you can’t be here tomorrow, don’t worry.  You can still pick up prizes, including your final book prize, until mid-September in the Storytime Room.  Just stop at the Youth Services Desk and speak to a librarian.

See you tomorrow!

Fizz! Boom! Read! Week Five!

We’re just past the middle of the summer, and our readers are still going strong!  What’s happening at the library this week?  Take a look:

14 This week 5As you can see, we’re signing up now for Blue Skies Planetarium on Monday, August 4th.  Because it’s a Monday, and a new month, we’re hoping people won’t forget!  There will be three sessions, each one limited to 30 people.  (there’s only so much space in an inflatable planetarium!)  See the details on the sign below, and visit the library soon to sign up!

And, our last thing…this week’s newsletter!  There are some fun books featuring geology in the booklist, and a very fun craft and recipe.  Check it out!

I hope everyone is reading up a storm this week!  :P  When August rolls around (at the end of the week!) we’ll start pushing the Summer Reading Deadline and the Summer Reading Celebration.  Don’t be caught by surprise!

 

Happy Reading!

Fizz! Boom! Read! Summer Reading WEEK FOUR!

It’s the fourth week of the summer reading program, and this week we’re featuring Zoology and Entomology.  (That’s animals and bugs, if you didn’t know!)  We have a really fun craft in the Craft Room, and a great display featuring our favorite books featuring animals. Or bugs.  Or both!

14 This week 4Our special program this week already happened…we had Mad Science visit us with their presentation on Egg-Bert and Ice, with Mad Scientist Leslie.  It was a great presentation…full of air molecules, floating spheres and bubbling potions.  Mad Science will return in August with a Rocket Demo, so watch for that and sign up!

Our newsletter this week features a fun craft that can be used for decoration or for a camping-out nightlight.  The best part is that it’s very easy to make, and you could fill a whole room with them for less than the cost of a bag of marshmallows!

Summer Readers…if you’re looking for suggestions, stop in and talk to a librarian.  We have some new and old favorites we’d love to share.  Or, if you’re just running in and don’t have time, grab a Band of Books from under Bella.  Three books from the same genre, grouped by reading level.  It’s a great time-saver if you’re headed for the pool and don’t have time to chat.

See you soon!  Keep reading!
