Friday Programs Continue -- WATER WORLD July 1!

On Your Mark, Get Set . . . READ!

Water World returns on Friday July 1. Beginning at 10:30 a.m the back parking lot will be filled with lots of watery activities -- water slide, bubbles, sprinklers, the dunking tank and of course the fire department with its hoses spraying everyone who wants to get really wet.  Make plans now to bring the kids and have a wet and fun time playing outside.

There will be 2 more Friday programs in July.  On July 8 Storyteller Carol Stanley will present stories and action at two performances at 10:00 and 11:30.  Carol always puts on a fun show for the kids, so you won't want to miss it.  On July 15, Anne Grace will return with Olympic stories, activities and information.  Have fun while learning interesting facts so you will be ready when this year's Summer Olympics begin in August.

Children of all ages and accompanying adults are invited to join us for these entertaining weekly programs. 

For more information, drop by the Library to pick up a schedule, email us for a copy (jburroughs@elbertcountypl.org) or give us a call at 706-283-5375. 

 

 

Summer Reading Program Rewards Readers

Summer reading programs aim to encourage children to read so that they will maintain or improve classroom skills as well as recognize the enjoyment that reading and learning outside the classroom can bring.  This year's program is no exception, and prizes will be awarded for reading.

Weekly sports-related prizes will be awarded to each child who reads or is read to for 2 hours.  At 10 hours, the child is awarded a free food certificate from Subway. 

Parents and children can keep up with their reading by using one of the summer reading logs available at the Library.  Just fill in a bubble for every 15 minutes spent reading, and return the lot to the Library to redeem a prize.  It doesn't matter what is being read, only that the child is reading or being read to.  

For more info, give the Library a call at 706-283-5375.

Monday Classes for Older Kids

Summer vacation means that Investigation Station Classes return for children in grades 3 and up.  These weekly classes begin on Monday June 6 and will continue through July 11, although there will be no class on July 4. 

Each activity-oriented session offers an opportunity to do things using information they learn through reading. Sessions may focus on science, art, crafts, games, outdoors or other special experiences.  There's no charge for attending, and reservations are not required.

If you have a child 4 years old or younger, make plans to bring him or her to a fun-filled program every Tuesday at 10:30.  Children and their caregivers will experience age-appropriate stories, fingerplays, songs, games and simple crafts.  

This new program just started in May, and the response has been great!  There's no need for reservations -- just come and enjoy a half hour of participative fun.

Give us a call at 706-283-5375 if you have questions.

Lego-Palooza Begins Thursday, June 2

Kids of all ages are invited to come play with the library's lego collection every Thursday at 3 p.m.  This is a great time to encourage your child to let his/her imagination run wild and see what can be created!

There's lots of blocks as well as some special kits for older children who want to build more complicated things. 

This is an hour of unstructured play time, and an adult is expected to accompany each child. (Some even enjoy playing with the blocks themselves!)  Questions?  Check out the Library's Summer Reading Calendar which is available at the Library, or give us a call at 706-283-5375.
