And the librarians are hitting the streets! (There's an idea for an Amelia Bedelia book ...) Actually, what I mean is: we're visiting schools! You may have noticed that now that the chicks have come and gone, things appear to be kind of quiet in the Youth Services Department. Where are all the programs!!?!
They're coming! Our summer newsletter with a full schedule of fun and educational events and programs will be out soon (for a sneak peak, check out June and July in our online calendar). In the meantime, we're busily visiting your children (or in some cases they are strolling over to visit us) at their school libraries to introduce this year's Summer Reading Program. Keep an eye out for blue sheets coming home with all of the details and lots of excited talk about June 1st and our Let's Read 50: Books, Hours, Days theme. Why read for 50?! Ask the kids! Anticipation is growing; school is out in only eleven days, and it's going to be one celebration of a summer at your local public library! :)
