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!
Our Summer Reading Program will begin on Thursday, June 30th with the theme this year being Exercise Your Mind...Read! The program starts at 2pm and runs for 4 weeks. Sarah Chastain, a 6th grade school teacher at Markesan District schools will be leading the group in fun adventures that do exercise the mind, so stop by and sign up today. And look for the librarians or their helpers, from all 5 of the Green Lake County libraries, in the June Dairy Days parade this weekend. We will be handing out pamphlets and bookmarks with dates for summer reading programs at all of the libraries.
