Libraries in all the states (except for Texas, the last I knew) provide summer reading programs around a common theme. This year’s theme is Dig Into Reading.
Lately, my library volunteer duties have included putting together some sample crafts. The librarian will take a little road show to area schools to drum up interest. This is a small sampling.
These programs bring an incredible amount of traffic into our library—kids of course, but also adult and teen volunteers, parents and/or grandparents who bring the kids and browse the library stacks while they wait. A lot of learning goes on over the summer. The place will be jumping…not the like the quiet library I tiptoed around when I was a kid.
