SUMMER READING RE-BOOT

After taking a short break in Summer Reading for July 4th,  we are ready to Fizz, Boom, Blast Off! on Friday, July 12 and continue with our regular schedule through July 25. Here's the schedule of Friday morning programs that begin at 10:30 a.m. for the rest of July:

July 11 -- Fizz, Boom, Blast Off! -- Test tube Tina returns, bringing Ralph the Robot to talk about robots and rockets.  Everyone will have a chance to use the library's stomp rockets at the end of the program.

July 18 -- Fizz, Boom, Dance! -- Zumba Instructor Rene Roberts will show us some great moves and get everyone dancing.

July 25 -- Fizz, Boom, Yum! -- We will conclude the Friday programs with a morning of stories and experiments about kitchen science (fun activities you might want to try in your own kitchen).

Throughout the Summer we all want to encourage the kids to read.  They may earn a small prize for every hour that they read or are read to, so be sure to pick up a reading log and get your child's name on the list of readers. Prizes will be awarded until school starts in August.

Plan now to be a part of Summer Reading at the Elbert County Library! For more information, give us a call at 706-283-5735.
