Check out this summer's winners here.
We had lots of great readers. In fact, 563 people registered! That was a lot of necklaces and beads we went through. You were all so excited about the dog tags and beads that we will do it again next summer. That's right, we're already thinking about summer 2020. Next years theme is "Imagine Your Story" (its fairy tales/Mythology and fantasy).
There was a total of 209,440 minutes that you've read! That's "increadible" ... yes I'm a goofball.
So now we're looking into fall. One of the things I'm most excited about are our new programs for parents. Here they are (click on the links to register and learn more):
SIP, SWAP, AND SHARE
For adults 18 and up. Do you have diapers, clothes, or toys your kids have outgrown? This program is a chance to meet and chat with other parents, have a cup of coffee or tea, and swap unneeded children’s items! We will have a different swap theme each month. Please feel free to attend even if you aren’t participating in that month’s swap! No registration required. Meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7pm:
September 3—Diaper Swap
October 1—Clothes Swap
November 5—Toy Swap
December 3—Book Swap
THE FACTS OF LICE
Saturday, September 14 at 2pm. For adults 18 and up.
Worried about what to do when your kids come home from school with pests? Come to our informational session presented by the Lice Clinics of America. They will share lice myths, what’s old information, what works to get rid of them, treatments, advice for the home, and most importantly, how not to panic! Registration begins August 31.
HEALTHY LUNCHTIME SNACKS WITH THE STORYBOOK COOK
Wednesday, September 18 at 7pm. For adults 18 and up.
Join us as we welcome Liz Bauld, The Storybook Cook, to our library. She will show us how to make some easy, fun, and delicious snacks to add to school lunches. The snacks will be healthier than what comes out of a bag, but still appeal to adults and children alike. Generous food samples will be provided...so come hungry! Registration is required and begins September 4.
PRESCHOOL OPEN HOUSE
Tuesday, October 29 from 6:30-8:30pm. For parents and caregivers.
Stop in and check out some of our local preschools. It's a chance to ask questions, get information, and discover what makes each school stand out from the rest. No registration required.
Saturday, November 23 at 2pm. For all ages and families.
If you have ever struggled with styling your child’s hair, this is the program for you! Come learn the basics of a few simple hairstyles to keep the bedhead at bay. We will have a mini hair supply kit for each participant! Please register both parent and child for this program. Registration begins November 9.
