Father’s Day is around the corner.  Do you have a plan to celebrate?  Maybe you’ll make breakfast with your kid(s) that morning.  We have lots of great children’s cookbooks, so you can find lots of easy, kid-friendly recipes.  Check out the call number E 641 in the Children’s Room, our selection covers two shelves!  We also have plenty of craft books if your kids want to make something special, explore the E 745.5 section.  Let a librarian know if you need help.

Whatever you do, don’t forget that replicating what Dad did for Mom is fair game.

Are you entering 1st-4th grade and can read independently? It’s time to apply to be a Summer Reading Buddy!  The program is very nearly full, so get your application in fast.

This 6-week program takes place Monday evenings, at the Main Library – Children’s Department (July 7th – August 11th).  Reading Buddies is a social program that promotes literacy through paired reading.  Teens earn volunteer credit by helping young readers develop confidence in their reading and comprehension skills.  Paired one hour reading sessions allow teens the opportunity to become mentors, and young readers the chance to make new friends while reading.

Please visit the Reading Buddies page for more information.

Applications are available now (please find on the Reading Buddies webpage above).  Space is limited, and the deadline for all applications is Thursday, June 12, 2014!  Teens are accepted on a first come, first serve basis so get your application in early!

Find out more about our teen programs and events at our Teen Page!
