"Be Creative at Your Library" summer reading program began on Wednesday with our kick-off at the Cherokee Community Center. A free hot dog lunch was served from 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. followed by a program that featured magician Chris Collins and his Wheel Of Amazement.
Those who have signed up for "Be Creative @ Your Library" program received guidelines, a reading log, and a bag with a few goodies. Many came to join in the fun.
Our summer reading program will offer programs on Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for pre-school -- 2nd grade children and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. we will offer programs for 3rd -- 6th grade children.
Each week has a special theme on how one can be creative. The theme for July 7th and 9th is "I've Got Rhythm". July 14 and the theme for July 16 is "Ham It Up with Free Play and Art," and July 21 and the theme for July 23is "Dance and Move."
We will have special guests each week who share their creative side with us. The reading log will have guidelines and activities that the children can complete each week to earn a prize and receive a Kid Pack Voucher that they can use for the "Hotel for Dogs" movie finale on Tuesday, July 28 at the American Theatre. If you have any questions please call the library at 225-3498.
