Library prepares for spring reading program
It's time once again for our annual Springo Spring Reading Program, which begins March 1 and continues through March 31. To participate, stop by the library and register. You will be given a bingo card when you register. Simply read books that fit into the categories listed in the squares and return the card to the library by March 31 to be eligible for prizes.
This is a fun program that encourages exploring the library and reading a wide variety of books from different areas. Some of the selections include magazines, poetry, jokes, hobbies, fiction and nonfiction. This program is open to all patrons, from pre-readers through adults.
Read 100 Stories Challenge
Don't forget about our "Read 100 Stories" challenge, which runs Feb. 19-April 19. To participate in the program, register in the library and receive a story log. Then check out books from our selection of story collections and record the stories you read on your story log. When you complete a story log, you may add one "book" to our story tower. For each "book" you add to our tower, you will receive one ticket for the prize drawing. This is a fun program and will be really easy to accomplish because many of the stories in the story collections are just a few pages long. Stop in and check out some of our great story collections!
Have a Seussical Day!
Celebrate "Read Across America" at the library on Monday, March 3, in celebration of the life and work of Dr. Seuss. We will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday by reading some of his stories from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and we will also have fun projects available in the library all day. Stop by and read your favorite Dr. Seuss book!
The library hosts a weekly story-time on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. Story-time includes theme-based stories along with a game, craft or other activity. Story-time is geared for preschoolers, but all ages are welcome to participate.
William Allen White Ice Cream Party
The library will be hosting an ice cream party at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, for youths in third through eighth grades who have read at least three of the 2008 William Allen White Award nominees. Participants must register in the library by March 31. We will discuss this year's nominees and introduce the 2009 nominees. Join us for fun, games and ice cream.
