I am looking out my office window with paper all over my desk and stacks of books to be processed and all I can think of is its Spring! Everything is greening and budding and blooming and calling me outside. Then I look around my office and realize that summer is next. With summer comes the Summer Reading Program. Then I realize I need to quit looking out the window and start looking at my summer reading stuff.
This years theme for the kids it One World Many Stories. I have all of the giveaways ready and half of the programs planned. I know what I want to do its just a matter of juggling dollars and planning.
This year we are having our first ever Young Adult program. This one is all planned out and I am just waiting on the financing. I have applied for a grant from a trust that only funds young adult programming. I hope to hear from them soon. If we don't get the grant I have other funds that I can tap but it would be tight.
The theme for the YA program is You Are Here.
I will post on the programming a little later. This year we will start a little later. Registration for the K-6 group will be on June 8 and the first program will be June 15. All programs will be on Wednesdays at 2:00pm. Registration for the 13 and up group will be on June 9. All of these programs will be on Thursdays at 2:00pm.
This summer is going to be so busy! We will be adjusting to a new building, by the way all programming will be help at the city hall. We do not have programming space in our new building, 2 summer reading programs, actually 3 because the Tot Spot will be going strong, and summer family movies on Tuesday afternoons.
Adults we will still have our reading incentive for you, too. It will run the same amount of time as the Summer reading program and you will be invited to attend one of the Teen programs if you are interested.
While I am fighting Spring Fever I will still be hard at work on our programs. I hope everyone is looking forward to this summer. I know that I am.
