The temperature is rising. The school days are winding down. This can only mean one thing. Summer Reading Program at the Kendrick Memorial Library! Yes! It is back, after a year missed due to, you know what, the always fun Summer Programs are back this year. With a few really cool changes.
The biggest change is that the activities will be held at the amphitheater in the park. This will make it possible to have no limit on the number of kids attending. “We don’t want to turn anyone away,” stated Sarah Basquez, Director of the Children’s Programs.
Librarian Nicole Acevedo stated, “We are excited with this opportunity to partner with the City and the County in using the amphitheater. It is so great when our community works together.”
The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program is “Tails and Tales.” The program will be held each Wednesday in June starting on June 2. The programs will begin at 10 and usually run 45 – 60 minutes. There is no age limit this year.
In keeping with the theme for the summer, the Masked Rider and her horse Fearless Champion, as well as Raider Red will be participating on one Wednesday.
The Water Education Trailer and Michelle Cooper will be providing a program. Southwest Dairy will be bringing their education trailer and a cow for the kiddos to watch as she is being milked. And, Freddy with his Green Winged Macaw BoBo will be coming.
There will be “Grab and Go” Activity Bags for all participants each week.
There won’t be any snacks this year, but there will be water available. Also, if you or your organization would like to donate water to the library for this, it would be welcomed.
Please go by the library and register your children at 301 West Tate.
Our library is such a great place and is utilized by so many. Be one of that number this summer and visit the library!
