May is one of our busiest months at the library. You might never even know how busy we are because it is all behind the scenes in May. Dee and I are brainstorming ideas, she is creating awesome activities and I am proofing many documents. Kelli and Kathy are printing off pages and (hint) stuffing bags. Why are we doing all this? May 28th marks the beginning of Summer Reading 2019- A Universe of Stories!
With 4 separate reading programs this year (Early Literacy, K-5th, Teens and Adults) there will be great prizes for everyone! We also have been adding so many amazing books lately. You are bound to find something just your style. You can turn in your reading logs anytime May 28th-July 31st.
Something that we really work hard planning throughout the year is our awesome summer entertainment. There is so much to do that I recommend picking up a calendar when you register for the reading program so that you don’t miss a thing. Here are just a few:
- Performers every Monday in June at 1pm at the Methodist Church’s Family Life Center
- Tinker Time each Wednesday 2-3:30pm (STEAM activities in partnership with Warren County Extension Office.
- Family Night each Thursday at 6:30pm
- Storytime every Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10:30am
- Storytime at the pool
- 4th and 5th grade only events
- Teen events (those who have finished 6th grade and above)
- Book Club
And new for this year, the Friends of the Library are holding an event on June 22nd. It is called ‘Escape from Wonderland’. Reserve a time slot for your group at www.carlislelibraryfriends.com. This is an all ages event.
After reading all this I hope you are starting to get as excited as we are about Summer Reading 2019! We hope to see you to sign up anytime starting the 28th.
