Summer Reading Kick Off

The summer is upon us and so is summer reading! We started our Be Creative @ Your Library Reading Program on June 5 with our Summer Reading Kickoff Party. Many children enjoyed face painting, a moonwalk, popcorn, games, and the opportunity to sign-up for summer reading. Participants will track their minutes spent reading and will earn free books and entries for weekly prizes. The Kickoff Party might be over but summer reading is in full swing until July 31st. Sign-ups will continue until June 30th in the Children's Room.

How does it feel to hold a butterfly in your hand?

At our butterfly release parties last week with Miss Ellen, kids had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the butterflies that grew from the itty bitty caterpillars we've been watching here in the children's room since April:

Thanks again to all who joined us. It was a wonderful event, filled with stories, butterflies, and good company:

We hope to see you all again soon, at our Summer Reading Kickoff Party this Friday, June 5 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm.
