Fizz, Boom, Read at library

The Plymouth Public Library is excited to announce that the 2014 Summer Library Program will begin Monday, June 16. This year we’ll celebrate science with the theme, “Fizz, Boom, Read.”

Kids birth through grade 5 can register for the Summer Reading Program any time on or after June 16. 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 Aug. 9, 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 also offers the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club. This is an ongoing reading program that is not limited to the summer. Kids can participate simultaneously in the 1,000 Books Club and Summer Reading program. Call the library or stop in for more information.

Teens entering grades 6 to 12 can participate in the Teen Reading Raffle. For each book you 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.

Big prizes include iTunes gift cards, gift certificates to Bookheads Bookstore, and free books. A Chance-It game is available for teens looking for a reading challenge. Teens who complete a Chance-It game board will earn a full-sized candy bar.

Don’t worry, grown-ups, the prizes aren’t just for kids. Adults can win journals, mugs, and Bookheads gift certificates for reading books throughout the summer. Call or stop at the upstairs desk for more information.

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

The Summer Library Program’s kick-off event will be a crafting party Wednesday, June 18 at 1:30 p.m. Create awesome science-themed crafts and snacks, like popsicle stick catapults and marshmallow robots. This 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 a.m. and 1:30 pm. 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 16. Join Miss Allyson each week for stories, songs, fingerplays, and more. Preschool Storytime will be Mondays at 10 a.m. and Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Baby and Toddler Storytime will be Mondays at 9:30 a.m.

For additional information on the Summer Library Program, stop in at the library or contact Youth Services Librarian Allyson Obermeier at (920) 892-4416, ext. 108.
