A Universe of Stories

The 2019 Summer Reading Program was a lot of fun; the theme was “A Universe of Stories.”  We had programs for everyone, from non-readers to adults.  This included contests, games, crafts, virtual reality, programs, prizes, and more!

The reading program started Monday, May 20, with two story hours each week. Tuesdays at 10:00 AM were geared for ages 3-5, while Thursdays at 10:00 AM were focused more on K-3rd grade.  We had some wonderful story hour teachers this summer, including the Pilot Club and Pratt Wildlife and Parks.  We also had special presentations by Dan, Dan, the Magic Man and by the Exploration Place.

185 children signed up for the reading program, and 125 completed the program. The younger children received their reading awards Tuesday, July 23 at 10:00 AM and the older children received theirs Thursday, July 25 at 10:00 AM. On Friday, July 26 at 7:00 PM the teens and adults had their party and received their rewards.
