We are just days away from the start of the signup for this year’s summer reading program and our huge book sale. Both begin on June 14 at 10:00 in the morning in the library annex (the former Mason building). We will be running the signup all week long and the book sale will last until the end of July.
The theme for the summer reading program this year is “Tails and Tales.” The theme will affect the games we play and the programming for the children. The main gist of the summer reading program is just to read books, but maybe in a more mindful manner. This program is for ages 0 through 100+. Entry blanks will be generously given throughout the seven-week program. These entries can go toward your choice of prizes, and there are a lot to choose from. The drawing for the prizes will be held at the final program of the year on Tuesday, August 10, at 10:00 AM. Bring your kids or grandkids and get the whole bunch of you signed up! It’s a great way to keep the kids reading through the summer.
There are a lot of books in this book sale, times ten! There are very few children’s books, but a very large selection of junior and adult fiction. There is also a nice assortment of adult and junior nonfiction. These books are the adult fiction books we have weeded from our library, along with a large variety of books weeded from the library at the Medicine Lodge Junior-Senior High. Individuals have also donated books for the sale.
There is also a table of movies included in the sale, T-shirts from previous summer reading programs, and framed photos by Bill Krug.
The books and movies will be $5.00 a bag and we will provide the bag. The proceeds from the sale of the books and other items will go towards Phase 2 of our remodel.
Set aside some time on June 14th through the 19th to visit the library and sign up, shop, and scrutinize Phase 1 of our awesome remodel. We are looking forward to a very fun summer! See you next week!
