I have a confession to make.
It’s been months since I stepped foot into our local library. How can that be??? We’re usually there at least once, if not twice a month during the school year and once a week during the summer. I don’t know if life is getting busier or if I’m losing my grip on reality. I even had to PUSH myself to get out of the house last week for the sake of the kids. But I did it! We went to the library and it was nice. Kids had a nice little sing-a-long, story-time, and craft, and we checked out books, some movies, AND reserved the The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe audiobook. Not sure if my kids are old enough yet, but we’ll see! And I was reminded how awesome our little library is.
Like many others, our library does a summer reading program. This year’s theme. Super Heroes! So fitting since my son is OBSESSED with Underdog at the moment. There will be puppet shows, snakes, and sciency stuff, LEGOS and a huge beach party in August with prizes and opportunities to earn free books.
But new this year, I think, is a their teen reading program. Oh my goodness! They get to make their own candy sushi, have a Splatoon color war, Mario Kart/Just Dance competitions, Sidewalk Graffiti, a Library LOCK-IN, where there will live streaming with authors and games. AND a fandom jeopardy style game to see who knows their fandoms the best. Can I come???
So now it’s your turn. Brag on your library. What cool things has it done, or is doing for the local community this summer? Be sure and let them know how awesome they are!
Have a great week!
