Summer Reading Club 2018

Libraries Rock!

Join in the music!

“Libraries!” is this summer’s theme in the Children’s Room. Children’s Summer Reading Club begins pre-registration and first check-outs the week of June 4th. An end-of-summer party will be held Aug. 3rd, from 10 a.m. to noon. The annual pet show is scheduled for July 7th in the library’s side yard.

Artist and author Brian Pinkney created artwork for this year’s posters and bookmarks. From biographies of famous musicians (Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald) to folk tales (“Cendrillion” and “Sukey and the Mermaid”) to his own illustrated stories (“On the Ball” and “Busy Busy Little Chick”), Brian Pinkney’s illustrations swirl with movement and color.

Participating children will get the chance to build their own musical instruments. Each arts & crafts program will be divided into two activities — one for younger children and one for older elementary-aged children.

To participate, a child must be a member of one of Crawford County’s libraries. Preschoolers and summer visitors will receive a temporary summer card. A stamp sheet will help children keep track of how many books they listened to or read.

For every book you read or two books you listen to, you will get a stamp on your sheet. When you have received 4 stamps, you may select a prize from the SRC display case.

For every four stamps,  a prize may be selected from the display case. When 12 stamps have been collected participants qualify for two chances to win one of the Grand Prizes. The drawing for these prizes will be held at the Summer Reading Club Party, Aug. 3rd. Open to children from toddlers to those leaving 6th grade, the summer program offers nine weeks of healthy reading fun!


Join in the fun!

Behold our new castle!

See how sound travels!
