This year’s theme for the Summer Library Programs (Every Hero Has a Story) has been FUN for staff and children alike! 31 children worked hard reading to earn their red cape and quite of few others preferred t-shirts, so we have had a SUPER successful summer of reading! All totaled: 2527 books and magazines were read this summer by our busy younger patrons.
Some Super (recently added) DVDs you may be interested in are:
Million Dollar Arm, The Box Trolls, Big Hero 6, Woman in Gold, The Longest Ride, Black Beauty (new), Home, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Paul Blart’s Mall Cop 2, Survivor, Call the Midwife, & The Endurance (documentary).
Feel free to seek relief from the heat at your very COOL Library!
So far the leaders in the marble jar race with the most books and magazines read this summer are the 4th & 5th graders with 662 marbles (books or magazines) in their jar!! 2nd & 3rd graders are hot on their heels with 560 marbles, and preschool through 1st graders have accumulated 496 marbles!
