Summer reading program kicks off to encourage children to read daily
The Desmond-Fish Library has begun its Dig Into Reading summer reading program, which will continue throughout the summer.
A variety of programs will be offered by the library to encourage daily reading for children while school is out.
Reading calendars are available to keep a record of daily reading. After reading 20 minutes a day for 10 days, children can come to the library to pick out a prize. More prizes are available for each 10-day time frame of reading. Parents are encouraged to read to and with their children on a regular basis.
Also during the month of July, the library will offer a craft program with Nina Elton, who will help children make clay creatures. Katherine Whiteside will work alongside children in the garden, and Tracy Strong and Polly Townsend will instruct children how to sew their own tote bags.
Join the Desmond-Fish July 20 to learn and hear stories about llamas. A real llama will be in attendance and will be ready for photo opportunities.
