Summer Reading Club available to children

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

County children can keep up with their reading again this summer.

Signups for the Summer Reading Club will begin Friday at the Brazil Public Library.

The children check out books from the library and receive prizes after reaching their reading goals.

"The program's goal is to help keep the children's reading skills active and present through the summer so they don't lose any skills between school years," Children's Librarian Tammy Robison said.

All ages up to high school are encouraged to attend the seven upcoming sessions.

Those interested in signing up must have a valid library card to participate in the reading club and to claim prizes, although the following weekly programs are free and open to the public:

* June 6 -- Make and Take Crafts,

* June 13 -- Super Stock Race Car,

* June 20 -- Meet Stellaluna the Bat,

* June 27 -- Brazil Police and Fire Departments,

* July 11 -- ISU "Bats of Indiana,"

* July 18 -- ZUMBA, and

* July 25 -- Silly Safaris with Coyote Chris.

All programs take place at 1:30 p.m., on Wednesdays.

"The programs were chosen based on the themes "Dream Big" and "Nighttime," Robison said.

The Clay County Friends of the Library, a local group that helps support the library programs, sponsor the Summer Reading Club. According to Robison, the club usually has around 150 children take part each summer.

For further information, call the library at 448-1981.

Wish we had library cards for our children but $50/yr is too much to pay. Sad.
