EL Public Library launches summer reading program

Readers of all ages will travel the globe this summer as the Elkhart Lake Public Library presents “One World, Many Stories.” The 2011 Summer Reading Program is open to everyone, from preschool through adult, with programs, prize drawings, story hours and more. Children will explore the world through stories, crafts, music and other activities.

Preschool Storytime is held Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. June 21-July 19. Families are invited to join this Read-to-Me program and chart the time they spend reading to earn rewards.

Programs for children in grade K-4 meet Wednesday at 1 p.m. June 22-July 13. Programming includes a magician, Zoomobile, children's book author, and a musical program.

Programs for young adults in grades 5-8 meet Tuesday at 1 p.m. June 21-July 13. They will explore the world through food, games and art.

On July 20, all children (K-8) are invited on a special fieldtrip to the Bookworm Gardens in Sheboygan, made possible through the generosity of the Mary and Bob Enrichment Grant funded by the Garton Family Foundation.

Teen programming will include open books discussion, movie night, “My Life in Six Words” event and a twitter-style book review contest. Adult programming will include open book discussion and “My Life in Six Words” event, too. Everyone is welcome to join as participants travel the world with three special programs exploring the Amazon, Africa and Greece. All programs are free of charge.

All participants are encouraged to track their reading and earn rewards. Prize drawings and challenge puzzles will be available.

Registration for “One World, Many Stories” begins June 13. For more information, call the library at 920-876-2554 or visit www.elkhartlakepubliclibrary.org.
