Summer Reading Program

Each year, a lot of libraries promote a summer reading program, oftentimes they are using the same program, or at least the same title. Our library's summer reading program runs from June 1st to July 31st each summer. This year's theme is "Catch the Reading Bug @ your library". Yep, the theme is bugs! We have a presenter each Wednesday for an hour's program and it is really well received. Ronald McDonald comes each year, Marty Hahne ( a truly gifted magician!), Libby's Lizards, and some others. This year, we are also having a representative from Weird Science, a Puppet show, a rep from NASA!, a storyteller, and an interactive musician. And the very last Wednesday of the program we do a movie day - one in the morning for the smaller children and one in the afternoon for the older ones. And it's the only time during the year that we can dress 'casual'. That means we all wear our Summer Reading Program T-shirts. This year we get antennae, too. See?

Our tech guy took the picture and photoshopped it....By the way, I'm the only one in the library whose head is small enough that the antennae fit! Everyone else has to pin theirs on so it doesn't pop off their heads.

Happy Wednesday. Read a book!

You know--every time I walk into our library--and it's at least once a week--I am going to picture your little, cute bug-face on all of those bug posters because we too share the same summer reading program theme....ha!
