Girard Public Library’s Summer Reading Programs are getting ready to start! Sign up is through the month of May. The Summer Reading Program is for all ages from preschool through adult. This year the theme centers around super heroes and super villains. The children’s theme is ‘Every Hero Has a Story!’ This is for ages kindergarten through fifth grade. Summer sessions will begin on Tuesday, June 9th for children Preschool-1st Grade (children need to have completed one year of preschool). For grades 2nd-5th, will begin on Thursday, June 11th. Grade is based on 2014-2015 school year. We will have 3 times you can choose from on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10-11, 1:30-2:30, and 3:30-4:30. The young adults theme is ‘Unmasked!’ and is for ages 12 years old to seniors in high school (based on 2014-2015 school year). The first meeting will be on June 3rd at 2:30-3:30. We have a ton of fun things lined up from life size clue to laser tag. This year, we will be having a competition between the super heroes and super villains. The super villains have heard about the book of power that the super librarians are guarding! Nobody knows exactly what the book of power can do, just that it has immense power. Maybe it can help someone take over the world, or the city, or the library? Maybe it can give someone immense wisdom? Nobody knows for sure. We need the super heroes to help us guard it! Or are the super villains going to get it??? We also, have a summer reading program for the adults, their theme is ‘Escape the Ordinary.’ For each book that an adult reads, they put their name in for a drawing for various prizes that community businesses have donated.
The Girard Public Library is offering a food program this summer.
Rally ‘Round Reading Sessions will continue through April 29th. Sessions for Ages 2-5 will be at 10:00 am and Grades K-5 will be at 3:30 pm on Wednesdays.
