“The library is a whirl of activity with summer reading program in high gear,” admitted a breathless Jen Leveck, Youth Services Librarian. “There have been several days of over 600 items checked out and last week we checked out over 675 items on Tuesday.” The Storytime participants continue to enjoy the story and craft on Tuesday mornings. Thirty-eight teens gathered in the meeting room for the henna project on Tuesday @ 2. Family movie night was also very popular, with the movie “Tangled” entertaining both kids and their parents. We had about 90 people for the program. If you missed it, check out the “Tangled” DVD to watch at home.
Week No. 5 of the Summer Reading Program will begin after the 4th of July holiday. On Tuesday, July 5, the 10:30 a.m. “Around The World Storytimers” will be hearing about “Traveling Animals” and making a craft to accompany it. Teens On Tuesdays @2 will be enjoying a European Food Fair by sampling foods from different European countries as well as trying out travel bingo. Teens always come away with some great books as door prizes. Family night will be another popular movie, “Kung Fu Panda.” Bring along a pillow or blanket if you want to sit on the floor. Refreshments are provided. On Wednesday, July 6, the first through fourth grade Afternoon Adventurers will be crafting optical illusions.
