Every summer, libraries across the country join together to present their respective Summer Reading Programs. We typically follow a similar theme but our programs vary greatly.
The SRPs are always fun to plan and even more fun when we get to see the kids’ faces at each program! The programs are for all ages, but typically up to about 5th grade comes. This year’s theme is “All Together Now” and the focus is on friendship, unity, and kindness.
Our Summer Reading Program begins 11 a.m., Thursday, June 15, with a performance by Melvino the Clown. On June 22, Balance Dance will be doing a dance workshop, and the popular Marshall Mitchell will be back on June 29. On July 6, we have the Amazeum presenting a workshop, and it will be at 9:30am, which is a different time than all the other programs, which are at 11 a.m..
On July 13, we will have a hands-on presentation about local wildlife with the Arkansas Fish and Game Commission. Our last summer program will be Terra Studios presenting a craft workshop. All programs will be at the Community Center. All programs are free.
