Cerebral nutrition via the written word – Literally Yours

BOBBIE MAPPIN & SEAN HIGGINS

Hey everyone! The summer reading program has started and it’s looking pretty tasty.

We have lots of fun (and free) activities for this summer, including Wednesday-morning programs at the Rochon Sands Community Hall, for kids who are living or camping out at the lake this summer. Stop by or check out our Facebook page (Stettler Summer Reading Program 2011) for more details.

Tomorrow we have a hula-hoop competition for ages 5-8 and 9-12 so if you know your way around a hula hoop, stop by for it. Friday is our all-ages kids’ day and we’ll be having surf Olympics from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. as well as making our own mini surfboards.

Lots of people are signed up for our Reading Buddies program, which runs every Tuesday from 12-1 and every Wednesday afternoon from 2 to 3. Participants can either come both days, or just choose one. We’ll provide a healthy snack and pair up older kids with younger kids so they can read aloud to each other or just look at books together.

A reminder to all teens that tomorrow is the first prize draw of the summer, so if you have read anything (and we mean…anything) in the last week, you are eligible to drop in and enter. After that we’re watching Back to the Future – it’s a classic. Everyone is welcome, and feel free to bring your own snacks.

On Friday we’re making tie-dye shirts with the teens at 2 p.m. Bring your own white cotton shirt, tank-top, hat, pants, or whatever, and we’ll tie-dye it and then hang it in the sun to dry. Cool, yes?

You may have heard or seen around town that folk/roots singer Donna Durand is coming down for a special free concert at the library on July 15 at 2 p.m. Bring all your friends and family and hear some amazing acoustic tunes.
