Hey there! Welcome back to our blog! We've been so busy wrapping up Summer Reading and getting ready for fall, that we haven't had much time to post - but I wanted to share some information with you about how AWESOME our Summer Reading program was this year!
This was my fourth Summer Reading Program at CIDL, and check this out - for the first time since I've been here we topped 500 kids signed up for our program! Over 140 teens and around 100 adults signed up too! It was a banner year! Thank you all for participating.
Kids from every school in the Clarkston Community School District participated. Many homeschool and private school kids participated. And lots of preschool kids participated too! It's a great program for our littlest friends. We all know how important hearing language and vocabulary is for our friends under 5. Summer Reading allows you as a parent to read to your kids, keep track of it, and then give them a small reward for something as awesome as listening to stories!
And on to Fall! Storytimes begin September 11 and run for two weeks, right up until our Friends of the Library Book Sale! Of course we will begin storytimes again when the book sale wraps up. Just check our calendar for dates and times!
We also have some fun things planned for the family this fall! In October we will have a Teddy Bear Sleepover. Have your little one bring his favorite stuffy (if he can bear a night away!) and leave the stuffy for a night of fun at the library! We will document all the fun your stuffed friend is having in the scrapbook you create at the program!
Boo-a-palooza is back for a 3rd year! Come in your costumes for games, snacks, crafts and more!
