Summer @ KPL!

(Libraries, News, Books, Reading) Permanent link

We spend months planning for summer and it’s finally here! Summer reading games for all ages kicked off last week with the end of school for KPS students.

As in recent years, kids – preschoolers and school age, tweens, teens, and grownups have their own game with age-appropriate requirements, incentives and prizes. Full information is on our website. Sign up at any branch or Central.

We have an array of events planned too: concerts, Zoomobile visits from Binder Park Zoo and John Ball Park, a musical circus, the ever-popular Bubblemania, cooking, crafts, gardening, and more.

And the “End-of-Summer Reading Party” to be held Sunday afternoon, August 29, will conclude our summer, but we won’t wish summer away….enjoy all the activities over the coming weeks.

On a more serious note, research shows that kids who read and write during the summer don’t lose “ground” over the break from school. Encourage all the kids in your life to read, either through a library summer reading game or books from their own collection.

Thanks to the FRIENDS OF KPL, our very good friends, for sponsoring all of our summer reading games.

Come visit soon.
