Summer is swinging along and here it is almost the end of June. The end of June brings the beginning of July and the beginning of July is a National Holiday. The library will be closed, Saturday, July 4, to celebrate our independence.
Signups continue with the Summer Reading Program. It's not too late to join the program and start reading books for fun and prizes. Come on in, get your program materials and start reading. This year for children birth to 4 years and children 4 to 12 years the subject is Every Hero Has a Story. For Teens, ages 12 to 17, the theme is Unmask.
The topic for adults, ages 18 and up, is Escape the Ordinary. Every book counts toward the Summer Reading Program prizes and don't forget to pick up a calendar with all the Summer Reading Program events listed.
Through June and July there will be NO story time Adams Memorial Library, however story time is continuing at the Auburntown Branch. Story Time will resume in August at Adams Memorial. Until then you can attend the Auburntown story time and join the Summer Reading Program with your children.
June 30 we have our fourth summer movie of the season. Did I say it was FREE? It's still free. With FREE popcorn? Lots of popcorn. FREE air conditioning? It's sooooo cool. Come to the Jennings Community Room to see the newest summer movie. We have a great crowd coming by who are making the movie part of their summer vacation. Make it part of your summer fun, too! Can't wait until movie day to know what we're showing? Come by or call the library to find out. Due to licensing considerations, we can't print the title in the paper, but you'll love it.
Thursday, July 2, we have a Summer Reading Program event that fits in perfectly with the coming celebration of our national independence - Military Heroes of Cannon County. Meet at the Courthouse at 1 p.m. for a tour of the county's military heroes, then come to the library to see military equipment. What will be here? Come and find out. Surprises are in store so don't miss this.
Don't forget our ongoing program "One Thousand Books before Kindergarten" that continues all year. If you have a child of pre-kindergarten age, stop by the circulation desk and sign up. You'll get a packet of materials to keep a record of your child's progress as well as games and activities.
This will be a wonderful addition to your child's memory book. Someday your child will be astonished at all the books she read when she was little and too young to remember reading.
Summer is moving fast. July is here! Don't miss the Summer Reading Program. This month we'll have our pool party and the grand finale. Don't hesitate! Come to the library and sign up for Summer Reading. There is still plenty to do. Come to the library and ask anyone at the desk to sign you up.
