Summer Reading Kick-Off

Today was our kick-off to Summer Reading...."Make a Splash."  Of course you have to start with story book reading.  The children love to be read to, along with reading themselves!

Our Children's Librarian ran the whole show today, with assistance from me (Director) and one volunteer.  Many of our children registered, were still attending our school district's summer school program this week, so a lot of those children were not present today.  Too bad because they missed out on a nice selection of fun water experiments.  We also let the children blow bubbles.....lots of bubbles.  Today was a nice start to the entire summer reading adventure.  I'm guessing we will have triple the attendance next Wednesday.  Let's hope for good weather since we will be outdoors again.
