The Youth Services department will again be offering two summer reading programs - one for children ages 12 and younger and another for young adults ages 12 to 18. As reading goals are achieved, kids will be awarded prizes – the more hours read, the more prizes received.
The fun doesn’t end with enjoying great books! There are many programs for kids and teens -- crafts, storytimes, games, and a performance by Magician Richard Landry and Snowball (June 24, 2 p.m.), a perforamce by Brian “Fox” Ellis, Professional Story Teller (July 1, 2 p.m.) and by the DePriest Puppets (July 9, 2 p.m. - Date Change!). For a complete listing of events, stop by the library for a calendar or see it online.
The adult reading program is open to anyone age 18 and over. Simply sign up to participate at the Readers’ Services Desk or Reference Desk. Each time a book is finished, stop by to enter a prize slip for the drawings. (The more you read, the more you can enter!) There will be weekly prize drawings for a variety of gift cards.
