Library Corner for the week of August 24, 2020
Summer Reading Club was a success!
The library staff is pleased with the outcome of this summer’s reading club. With the many changes we had to make with the program, we executed an exciting & creative virtual programming experience for our library families.
We had a total of 20 kids participate by picking up the craft/activity supplies each week and sending in their weekly reading logs every week as well. So far, the kids read a total of 17, 806 minutes!
During the program, we ran a segment called “Story time with Colter” on our YouTube channel. We also posted demo videos of some of the crafts and activities they created & participated in from home… was a lot of fun! Story time with Colter will continue each week during the fall.
There are 3 weekly reading prizes the kids could enter when they send in their weekly reading logs. A child that sent in all 7 logs by the end of the summer had their name entered into the grand prize. Prize winners will be announced Tuesday afternoon along with a Summer Reading Club Virtual Wind up! Tune in on YouTube, or Facebook!
