Library plans summer events

The Plymouth Public Library is excited to announce that the 2015 Summer Library Program will begin on Monday, June 15.

This year the library will celebrate heroes with the theme “Every Hero Has a Story.” The library has programs for kids, teens, and adults.

Kids birth through grade 5 can register for the Children’s Summer Reading Program any time on or after June 15. 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. 8, you can pick up an extra challenge sheet to keep reading and win an additional prize.

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 reads at least two books during the program will win a prize, but the more you read, the better your odds of winning a big prize. A Reading Bingo is available for teens looking for a reading challenge.

Don’t worry, grown-ups, the prizes aren’t just for kids. Adults can win tumblers, canvas bags, 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 on Wednesday, June 17 at 1:30 p.m. Create awesome hero-themed crafts like superhero masks, and frost and eat a star-shaped sugar cookie. 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 storytellers, jugglers, magicians, musicians, fire fighters, and search dogs. Performances are at 10 a.m. 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 15. Join Miss Kim each week for stories, songs, fingerplays, and more. Baby and Toddler Storytime will be Mondays at 9:30 a.m. Preschool Storytime will be Mondays at 10 a.m. and Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.

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