The mole and the agent come out

Literally Yours

By Stephanie McComb and Sarah Gregory

Tomorrow, we invite all junior agents to attend the wind-up of this year’s children’s summer reading program: Agent 009.

We will be announcing the identities of the Mole and Agent 009, as well as handing out prizes to the junior agents who discovered their identities. We will also be awarding prizes for reading and participation. All junior agents will receive a prize and progress to full agent status. Even though it’s the last day, children who have not previously attended are welcome to join us for the wind-up. As a reminder, children entering grades one to three attend from 10 a.m. to noon. Children going into grades four and five come in the afternoon from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Along with all the junior agents, we would like to thank Mr. Bengert and Mr. Hargreaves for the awesome Tae kwon-do workshop last Thursday. We all had an enormous amount of fun learning kicks and punches, and breaking boards.

For all the loyal youth members of the Teen Reading Club, the club time will be changed to every Friday at 4 p.m. beginning September 4. For our littler bookworms, bedtime stories will be taking a short break after tomorrow’s story time. Starting September 10, Crystal will resume bedtime stories and it will continue every Thursday at 7 p.m.

Wow, summer is almost over! And what an amazing summer it has been. Just to let everyone know, for the rest of the year, our hours will remain as follows:

Monday – 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; 
Tuesday – 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.;
Wednesday – 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.;
Thursday – 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.;
Friday – 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; 
Saturday – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
Sunday – Closed
