Summer Reading Club ends this Sunday, August 1st. If you haven't brought your kids into the library just yet, sign them up and get reading! If your child is reading on their own, they need to read 16 hours to complete the program, and if you are reading with your child, you can read 32 books together to complete. There is still time to get it all done, and there is a prize for making it half way (8 hours or 16 books), so you can always just sign them up!
As this year's summer craziness comes to a close, remember that your child's summers are a magical part of their growing up experience. Make sure to make the most of it by making lightning bug catchers, visiting the forest preserves, taking a hike, and going camping. All of these experiences will make for the best memories (and as an added benefit, they can all be used as learning experiences).
If your child is working on the Summer Reading patch, they have until August 31st to finish, so encourage them to continue to read their 10 books about 'being green'.
Enjoy the rest of the 'Green Days of Summer', and if you need any great summer activity ideas, don't hesitate to visit the library and we would be happy to help!
