Summer Reading now completed:
Wow! What a blast we had with our Fizz, Boom, Read SRP.
Our library was booming with Mr. Molecule, experiments, slime, seed planting, bird beak anatomy, learning about our eyes, magic, story times and of course lots of reading check ins and book check outs!
Congratulations to all of our grand prize winners who will be doing a lot of fun activities over the next couple months including visiting Kings’ Island, The Wilds, COSI, Coney Island, World of Bounce, Armstrong Air & Space Museum, The Works, Drake Planetarium, Great Lakes Science Center, watching a Columbus Crew game, playing with a Cleveland Browns football and getting a new haircut.
There were many children who received gift cards to Target or Wal-Mart, toys, t-shirts, books and lots more prizes for reaching their reading goal. Congratulations to all who participated in a great summer of science and reading.
Our children’s summer reading program wouldn’t happen without a lot of businesses that support us by donating a prize or their time to present a program. It certainly wouldn’t happen without the parents and grandparents bringing children to the library or without the occasionally drafted parent to help with a program at the last minute. The SRP is an effort that is supported by everyone who works at the library – whether they are helping with decorations, assisting children with their check ins, taking pictures or just providing me moral support. I sincerely thank everyone ensuring our community children a great library experience and discovering that books, reading, learning and fun all go together.
June, 2015 will be here sooner than we know and we will find out that “Every Hero Has a Story.” Enjoy the rest of the summer, and thanks again for a great Fizz, Boom, Read SRP!
During the month of August we will take a break from children’s programs to prepare for fall programs which will resume in September.
