lmelibrary.org. Registration will continue throughout the month of June.
We are offering 4 different programs this summer. “Read-to-Me” is for birth through Pre-K. The children will get a prize after enjoying 10 books, and they will get a book to keep after reading 20 books. They may continue to read and get prizes as long as prize supplies last.
“Reading by Design” is the theme for K-5th graders (grade just finished). In this program, readers will get a prize every time they finish reading 90 minutes. After reading 360 minutes, readers in this age group will be invited to the private pool party put on by the library in mid-July. Additionally, this group also has been issued a challenge. If they collectively read a minimum of 19,270 minutes by July 8, one lucky winner will be drawn to either dump Jello on Ms. Anita’s head or have it dumped on them.
The “Summer Creators’ Showcase” is for 6th – 12th graders. This program will focus on creating/making/doing a project of the reader’s choice. Finished projects will be displayed or presented at a showcase here at LME on Friday, July 21st.
The “Summer Challenge 6 of 9” is for adults. The log sheet is set up like a tic-tac-toe board with different activities in each square. Upon completing 6 activities, the reader will be entered into a drawing for a prize basket.
That’s just the basics! In addition to the actual reading programs, many fun activities are filling June and July. We have a representative from Ameren doing a safety program, a juggler, a Guinness World Record holder, and a science show that will literally explode! There are also Toddler Storytimes, Pre-K Storytimes and Maker Camps (hands-on STEAM activities). The full calendar can be found on our website at lmelibrary.org.
Let’s not forget the kickoff dance party on Thursday, June 1st from 10-11:30am!!! Come sign up and have some fun in the process. Let’s get this summer of discovery started!
