‘Dig Into Reading’ at library

The Plymouth Public Library is excited to announce that the 2013 Summer Library Program will begin Monday, June 17. This year’s theme is “Dig Into Reading.”

Kids birth through grade 8 can register for the Summer Reading Program any time on or after June 17. At registration, kids will receive a reading booklet to record the time they spend reading. Prizes are given for every 90 minutes read. If you finish your reading booklet before August 10, you can pick up an Extra Challenge sheet to keep reading and win more prizes.

For kids who have not yet entered Kindergarten, the library is offering a new reading program this year called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. This is a continuing program that is not limited to the summer. Kids can participate simultaneously in the 1,000 Books and Summer Reading programs. Call the library or stop in for more information.

Teens entering grades 7 to 12 can participate in the Teen Reading Raffle. For each book read, fill out a raffle ticket to enter into a drawing for prizes. Everyone who enters will win a prize, but the more you read, the better the odds of winning a big prize! A Chance-It game is available for teens looking for a reading challenge. Books read for the Chance-It game earn double raffle tickets. No registration is required for the teen program. Teens entering grades 7-8 can choose to participate in the kids program or the teen program.

The Plymouth Public Library also offers a reading program for adults.

When you’re not busy reading, be sure to stop by the library for our special events and programs.

The Summer Reading Program’s kick-off event will be a crafting party Wednesday, June 19 at 1:30 p.m. Create cool crafts like fossils and wearable dinosaur feet, enjoy a snack that looks like dirt. The program is open to kids of all ages and their families.

Every Wednesday throughout the summer, a special performer will be visiting the library. Performers include jugglers, magicians, and musicians. Performances are at 10 and 1:30 p.m. A full schedule of events is available at the library.

Storytimes for young children will also be offered this summer beginning the week of June 17. Join Miss Allyson each week for stories, songs, rhymes, fingerplays, and more. Preschool storytime will be Monday mornings at 10 a.m. and Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Baby and toddler storytime will be Monday mornings at 9:30 a.m.

For additional information on either the children’s or teen reading program, contact Youth Services Librarian Allyson Obermeier at (920) 892-4416, ext. 108, or stop in at the library and ask at the Children’s Service Desk.
