Our young library patrons are enjoying a fun summer at the library. Last week, Chris Rumble entertained the kids with his “Adventure of Illustration” program. This Friday (June 18), special guest is comedy entertainer Jason Huneke. Other libraries that have hosted Jason report having a very entertaining program. His comedy is clean enough for kids, smart enough for adults, and edgy enough for teens. He will be doing two shows: one at 10:00 am and the second at 1:00 pm. Come enjoy! All ages are invited to attend.
Next week, June 25, special guest will be Keith Trehy, formerly known as The Mad Scientist. He will be appearing this year as Mr. Bond, the Science Guy presenting “Slippery Science.”
Last week, Megan Clenny won the $50 cash prize in the Teen Reading Program. If you are entering 5th grade through 12th grade (ages 12-18), you may receive one free entry for every book you read during the month of June. This Friday, we will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to In His Hands. June 25, the prize is a package of 4 tickets to Eclipse, which will be in movie theaters on June 30. Our grand prize, an 8 GB iPod Touch, will be given away on June 30.
This year, we are having a few Preschool Summer Reading Programs. The first one held on Tuesday, June 15, was a hit. The next one will be on June 29at 10:00 am. The topic is “An Ocean of Fun: Fish.”
