Last week was BUSY!! So thanks to everyone who came out!
Maybe you came to get some steals at theBooks for the Beach paperback sale where the Friends raised $1,154, your child participated in the kids’ summer reading kickoff or first week of programming, or you signed up for the Adult Summer Reading program and got a nice goodie bag! If you didn’t, there’s still time to check out what we have this summer! It’s another busy week!
This week at the library:
Monday: To Earth and Beyond; 6:30pm; ages 4 and up with a grown up; signups required. Ron Kunkle, director of the Lehigh Valley Amateur Astronomical Society, is demonstrating for the kids a scale “walking model” of the solar system! Any budding astronomy buffs don’t want to miss out this interactive presentation on the night sky!
What Happened to Pluto?; Adults; 7:30pm. Mr. Kunkle will stick around to present a program for the adults, talking more about the solar system, as well as bringing telescopes for star-gazing!
Tuesday: Owls: weekly SRC program for kids entering grades K-1st in Fall 2012. 10am. Advanced Registration required.
Bats: weekly SRC program for kids entering grades 2nd-3rd in Fall 2012. 12pm. Advanced Registration required.
Wolves: weekly SRC program for kids entering grades 4-6th in Fall 2012. 2pm. Advanced Registration required.
Wednesday: Dreamtime Storytime, drop-by storytime for children who were 2 as of 9/12/11 through 6 years old. No signup required.
Friday: Baby Lapsit, 9:30am, a “beginner storytime”/introduction to the library for children who were 11 months old or younger as of 9/12/11; advanced registration required.
Ones Storytime, 10:30am; a “beginner storytime”/introduction to the library for children who were between 12-23 months as of 9/12/11; advanced registration required.
So this is what’s up for Week 2 of the Summer Reading Club here at the library! And you guys are definitely reading! We have had almost 50 people sign up for the adult reading program. And only counting the books logged into the online tracking system for the kids, not adding in the books for kids using print logs in the library, we have about 1,700 books already read by kids! Keep going!! I’d love to see the kids blow away the 6,750 books read total from last summer!
Just as a reminder, you can sign up for any of the 3 Reading Incentive Programs at any time through Aug. 11, but the programs typically require advanced registration and many have limited spots available. But really, there’s something for every age group this summer. If you have any questions on Summer Reading for the kids, please check the Parents tab of the Children’s Homepage or our online program calendar for more information and stay tuned through our Facebook page for up-to-the-moment announcements! We hope to see you in sometime soon at the library!
