Did you know that reading every day during the summer is critical to retaining literacy skills learned during the school year?  Children who don’t read during the summer are at risk for falling behind their peers in the next school year.  The good news is, libraries have come up with a fun way to reward children for their reading during the summer.  If you haven’t yet signed up for our summer reading program, there is still time!  All you need is a library card to sign up.  Any age is welcome to participate.  Kids get weekly prizes as well as entries to win the grand prize at the end of the summer.  Teens and adults will be entered to win several great prizes at the end of the summer.

If you’re interested in joining in the fun this summer, we have event calendars available at the library with all of the fun programs and entertainers we have lined up for the summer.  Events will also be listed here, and on our website: http://blackcreeklibrary.org/library_calendar

Don’t forget – tomorrow we’re making paper airplanes and wind chimes at 2 pm!  No registration is required.

Wednesday, June 27th, from 1 – 3:30 pm, in preparation for Independence Day, we will have lots of fun projects and Fourth of July crafts and activities, including patriotic glasses, picture frames, door hangers, beaded keychains, and more.  We will also talk about American symbols and you can get your picture taken as your favorite president!  Glow sticks and other items will be given out so you can show off your patriotic pride.  There will be something for all ages to do.  No registration required.

Join us on Friday, June 28th, at 10 am for our first performer of the summer, Randy Peterson!  Come and rock with Randy as he presents an upbeat, interactive musical show centered on our summer reading theme.
