Summer has arrived and so has the Summer Reading Club at all library branches. Library staff has had a wonderful time decorating each branch and hope everyone drops by to have a look. Registration begins Thursday June 23, and the program continues until mid August. Children record the number of minutes they read, win instant prizes and are able to enter draws for books and the grand prizes.
The theme is SPLASH, and with this in mind, I’d like to suggest a wonderful new children’s book to kick off summer, Ladybug Girl at the beach by David Somar and Jacky Davis. Each book in the ladybug series explores different emotions in children’s lives. Other titles in the series have dealt with imagination and empowerment, and friendship and compromise. In this book, Lulu must face her fear of the huge ocean that makes a roaring sound. As Ladybug Girl, this pint-sized superhero finds the courage to overcome her fear.
The summer reading club is aimed at children, but we’d like to remind everyone, regardless of age, to stock up on summer reading material before heading out on vacation.
