Summer Reading is coming
Posted May 22nd, 2018 in Uncategorized
It’s one of my favorite times of the year – summer. It’s time for barbecues, creeks, the whir of a fan, the first juicy bite of a perfect sun-kissed tomato, walks in the cool woods. All the things that remind you of when you were young and summer was a great adventure.
There was also another part that I loved about summer – reading. When the heat and humidity got too much, it was time to take my book into the shade or up a tree, curl up and see where it would take me.
That’s one of the things we love about summer – our Summer Reading Programs. We have two: one for children and one for adults.
Kids and Teens
We’ve planned six weeks of fun programs for kids filled with magic, storytelling, animals,Bingo and even live theater. Bright Star Theatre brings its production of “Alice in Wonderland” to all our library locations. We’re really looking forward to going down the rabbit hole with Alice and the other characters in Wonderland.
We have movies, crafts, Lego, STEM programs and more.
We have special teen only programs at the main library and Glade Spring branch library. The main library offers teen crafts. The Glade Spring branch library offers teens only movies and teen crafts.
We have weekly prizes for teens and kids. We’re also giving away bicycles. Kids bring their book logs to the library, and they’re entered. We’re doing the drawing at the end of the six weeks. Maybe you’ll be the winner of a bicycle to take on long summer rides.
Kids just need to visit their local library and register. They’ll get an overdue fine forgiveness card, a tote bag, and we’ll show them how to fill out their book logs. A complete schedule of events can be found here.
Teens compete in weekly activities and are entered to win gift cards for movie tickets, music downloads and more.
Join us this summer and share the excitement of a good book.
