Summer Reading Club
Fizz, Boom Read
The theme for this summer, “Fizz, Boom, Read!,” will send readers into laboratories to enjoy a summer of scientific discovery. This year’s Children’s Summer Reading Club begins preregistration and first check outs the week of June 2nd. The summer club runs from June 9 through to the end of summer party on August 1.
The artwork for this year was created by Dan Santat. His fans appreciate his art in such graphic novels as “Sidekicks,” and he is involved in creating new artwork for the reissue of the Dav Pilkey series Ricky Ricotta.
The summer program is open to children from toddlers to those leaving 6th grade. Incentives and activities will make this a nine weeks of scientific exploration
Each of the craft activities will start with demonstrations by our resident mad scientists of scientific principles such as density, air pressure, and surface tension. Afterwards there will be crafts based on these principles including, slime, paper aircraft, bubbles, and marbled paper. Each arts & crafts program will be divided into two activities- one for younger children and one for older elementary aged children.
The annual pet show on July 12th will be held in the library’s side yard again this year.
To participate, a child must be a member of one of Crawford County’s libraries. Preschoolers and summer visitors will receive a summer card. A special reading lab chart will be issued to record each reader’s and listener’s progress through summer reading pleasure and prizes.
For every library book read, children will get a stamp on their lab charts. Preschoolers must listen to two books to get a stamp. For every four stamps, a prize may be selected from the display case. When 12 stamps have been collected, participants qualify for two chances to win one of the Grand Prizes. The drawing for these prizes will be during our Summer Reading Club Party scheduled at 10 a.m. on August 1st.
