Library kicks off kids' summer reading program

Four weeks from today, “Fizz, Boom, Read” and “Spark a Reaction” will officially kick-off at the “Q.”  “Fizz, Boom, Read” is the title of our 2014 summer reading program for kids from infants through sixth grade.

The program is divided into two categories, one for pre-schoolers through age 5, and the other for elementary school-age kids. This year, we will give prizes for a set number of minutes read by the older kids and for special activities done by the pre-school kids.

In addition to reading for prizes, there will be programs on Tuesdays and Fridays with a variety of performers.

On Wednesday mornings, we will alternate between Lego Club and Tinker Time (a time to take things apart and see what makes them work).

On Thursday mornings we will continue to have our preschool story time and Thursday afternoons will be craft time for the elementary school-age kids.

“Spark a Reaction” is the title of the teen summer reading program. Tuesday afternoons, we will have a teen program for middle school and high school students.

Prizes for reading were selected by teens this year, so we’ll have some cool prizes for the teens who choose to read as well as participate in the activities.

We will be discussing Charles Portis’ book “True Grit” at noon Wednesday. If you’ve read the book and would like to join the discussion, please join us.

See you soon at the “Q”!
