Our summer reading program in July was a great hit. Children who participated were asked to read 20 minutes a day for the entire month. All those who completed the program were eligible to come to the pool party that was held at the Berlin Aquatic Center. All the readers enjoyed several hours of swimming, a light supper, and an ice cream cone from McDonalds before heading home. We are thankful to the National Exchange Bank and the Edna Erna Pugh Trust Fund for funding the trip! Regular story hour will have the month of August off and start again on Thursday, Sept. 8th at 4:30pm.
July was a busy month for our library with the Summer Reading Program in full swing. The theme this year was "Exercise Your Mind...Read". On two different occasions we had special guests come in to read with the children and then talk about how exercise was important to both their minds and in their lives. . Barb Reif rode in on her bicycle and talked about bike riding, both the safety issues and the enjoyment of it. And Logan Grahn came with a bag full of hacky sacks and talked to the children about juggling and then they all got to try it. Our library is definitely not a quiet library and if you have been in on Thursdays at all in the past month you would have heard lots of giggles and chattering from the kids in the reading room!
