The staff of the Youth Services Department is having so much fun decorating for the Summer Reading Kick-off next week! "Lions and tigers and bears..oh my!" Also leopards, giraffes, rhinos, monkeys... There are monkeys hanging from vines over our "stage" area; there are animals flying the model airplane over the young readers tables; there is a safari in the front window; the story tree has monkeys and snakes. Wow!
School goals for the summer are up and the bulletin board will track progress "to the watering hole" throughout June and July. We would love to hand out trophies to ALL the schools in September, so come in and show your school spirit this summer.
Sign ups for story times, crafts, Thursday events, and reading for prizes will take place next week for children 6 months through 12 years. Come in out of the heat and rain to sign up, get materials, play the special games, and start your reading! There are so many things to do this summer!
The Teen Summer Reading Program will begin June 8, but everyone is invited to come check out the special Video and Wii contests!
Grab your Safari hats, a camera, and READ on the Wild Side this summer.
