Experiment with a Good Book!

It’s that time again! We’re just about ready to kick off our annual Summer Reading Club. If you’re not familiar with our club, it’s really easy and REALLY FUN! Registration begins this Monday, June 2nd and can be done in person at either library (Centerville or Woodbourne), online, or over the phone. Kids entering preschool - 5th grade can join our children’s club, where they get “game cards” to track their reading (by hours or by number of books read—it’s their choice). For babies and toddlers, we have activity sheets that are filled with fun early literacy activities for you and your little one to do together. Along the way, there are tons of coupons for free stuff and prizes to win (parents can even win prizes just for having your children participate!), and each child who completes the baby/toddler or children’s club will win a book! We also have a summer reading club for adults. Participating in that is a great way to show your child that you’re excited about reading, too!

During SRC, we’ll also have tons of great programs for the whole family to enjoy. Check out our programs here. In addition, this year’s theme is “Experiment with a Good Book,” and each week we’ll have a different science-related theme for our craft centers located in the children’s rooms at both the Centerville Library and the Woodbourne Library. You and your kids can stop by anytime we’re open to make cool crafts and color our coloring sheets.

Finally, I know that many of you, like me, are anxious for storytimes to start up again. Luckily for us, we don’t have to wait too much longer, as storytimes will resume the week of June 9th! Check out the new summer storytime schedule here. Registration is not necessary for any summer storytimes. Feel free to come whenever you can! 

We’re looking forward to seeing lots of excited readers this summer!
