Getting Ready to "Dig Into Reading"

Judging by the Tweets I've been reading, it seems as if most of the libraries in the country have started their summer reading programs. In New Jersey most public schools don't get out until mid-June. Many will get out even later thanks to power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy. However, we are getting ready. I came to work Tuesday to find the bulletin boards decorated and the fliers out. (I work part-time so I missed all the prep.) Our boards were created by another part-timer who is a school librarian. She creates most of our bulletin boards and I love her attention to detail.

Registration for our summer programs begins June 17 and our Kick-off event is the evening of June 25. (The DJ will be back!) The reading program runs June 24 to August 17. Scheduled library programs include storytimes, craft programs and entertainers. New this year is a "Kids Cook" program (the first program features "dirt cake" complete with gummy worms), as well as free movies and a craft program just for tweens.  It's going to be a very busy summer!
