Were you able to catch a glimpse of the library's float on the Fourth of July? Many hands were needed to prepare for the parade. Even the children were involved in creating the colorful candles. Special thanks to all those who volunteered their time, especially Mr. Mike Miller, art teacher for the Wyomissing Area School District. For the first time ever, we tied for first place!
A Note From Miss Corinne:
Summer Reading Update & Request for Feedback
Just as quickly as summer arrived, it's already coming to an end. Ultimately, the goal of the Summer Reading Program (SRP) is to encourage children to read throughout the summer, avoiding the "summer slide," of losing their reading skills. An impressive 549 hours of reading have been recorded thus far.
Summer 2013 has been an experimental year for the SRP at our library. In an effort to promote early literacy activities and reading, I created activity sheets, replacing reading tickets used in previous years. To improve the experience for future reading programs, I would greatly appreciate feedback from parents on this year's experience.
Below is a link to a short questionnaire through Survey Monkey. Thank you in advance for your input!
The library is always bustling during the summer months. Below are snapshots of the fun we've been having during our Summer Reading Program.
