Summer reading program has a lot more in July
July 11, at Adair County Fair; July 17, Animal Gambill at ACPL; and chance to win ticket to Picnic and Scavenger Hunt at Giles House
By Dana Harmon
Staff from the Adair County Public Library and the Adair County School District have been hosting a Summer Reading Program throughout the month of June. In July we have even more plans.
On July 11th we will celebrate National Summer Learning Day at the Adair County Fair. We invite everyone to stop by our tent for games, prizes and information on Summer Learning.
On July 17th at 5:00pm CT, Shannon Gambill aka Animal Gambill, who is a crusader for animal welfare and children's author will be at the Adair County Public Library with Hobo Kitty, a live character from her book. She will also be available for book signing and storytelling. Everyone is invited to attend. There will be door prizes as well. Check out the website for more info www.animalgambill.com
It's also not too late to come by the library and pick up a Summer Reading Journal. Students Pre K through 12th grade can record the books they read or that are read to them during the summer and bring the journals by the library to be awarded prizes. One of the prizes is a ticket to the Picnic and Scavenger Hunt at the Janice Holt Giles farm on July 27th. We have lots of fun and prizes planned for this event that will wrap up the summer. So there is still time to reach that goal and be in on this incredible day of fun.
You do not have to attend the story hour at the library to be eligible to earn prizes, but you are welcome Wednesdays from 10:00am to 12:00 noon CT. If there are any daycare centers or day camps that would like to come by and pick up journals for their children, they are more than welcome. We want to ensure that everyone continues to read and learn throughout the summer months. Remember, Readers are Leaders
