While you're reading, don't forget to come in for these special summer programs!
TEEN SUMMER READING PROGRAM
Those who are entering 6th through 12th grade can enroll in the Teen SRP this summer. All times for both sessions are the same as for kids’ program (see above). Read, attend the programs, and see if you can “Spark a Reaction!”
SRP PROGRAMS for Teens Grades 6 - 12 only
Special Programs for teens will be held on five Wednesdays from 6:30 - 7:30 pm June 11 - July 2.
The programs will always include food, fun, music, and activities. Check our Facebook page or Teen Corner for an updated listing of programs or pick one up when you register for the reading program. The special programs will be based on the theme for Summer Reading Program: “Spark a Reaction.”
We’re still working on them to bring you the most exciting, interesting, and not-lame programs! Registration for any or all of the programs is appreciated—call the library at 260-726-7890 or email Linda—but not necessary.
Refreshments ALWAYS served!
VROOM, VROOM! BOOKMOBILE AT REDKEY ELEMENTARY
As a part of the Summer Reading Program and in cooperation with Redkey Elementary School—thanks to former JCPL Page and current School Librarian Cathy Fugiett—the bookmobile will visit Redkey Elementary School every Wednesday for a six-week period.
From June 4 - July 9, the bookmobile will visit from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm. Books and audio materials will be available for normal check-out. Patrons can sign-up for the Summer Reading Program, check in and out, place holds, renew, or sign up for a new card. Call the library to request specific materials and they'll be loaded on the bookmobile for the next trip. Sorry, no DVDs will be available on the bookmobile.
Summertime at the Library and KiPS
During the lazy days of summer, business usually slows at the library. Patrons come in to find a cool corner to read and relax, check their email and take their time browsing for books. Kids play with puzzles, activity tables, and on the computers.
But on Tuesday mornings our KIPS (Kindergarten Prep School) brings in about 100+ preschoolers and things get a little crazy! The children's area is abuzz with sound and movement!
If you're looking for that peaceful time at your library, you might want to visit another day!
