Dig Into Summer Reading!
Children of all abilities ages 3-12 are encouraged to dig into the library's 2013 Summer Reading Program. Children will keep reading logs at the library or online so that they can log the minutes that they've read or have been read to. To register online, click on the "Summer Reading" link on our website, and begin logging minutes read each day beginning June 15th (you may register up until August 1st).
Dig Into Reading Thursdays: for children entering grades 1-6 beginning July 11th. Every Thursday at 1 PM through August 15th, performer/educators will dig up lots learning fun...from insects to rocks & minerals to animals. A schedule of events is available in the library or on our online calendar. No registration necessary.
Read-to-Me Club for children ages 3-6 will meet on Friday mornings between 10:45 - 11:45 AM from July 5th - August 16th. We'll dig our way through stories, songs, and fun crafts. No registration necessary.
Book/Craft Club beginning July 9th for children entering grades 4-6 in September. They'll meet Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 1-3:00 PM through August 14th to share a craft project, educational games, and discussions about the books that they read together. This club is limited to 20 children so parents/guardians must register beginning June 11th by contacting Ginny Figlia, Head of Youth Services, at 831-1134 x 103 or email@example.com.
All children who log their time read will have their names sent to their schools for special recognition in September!
HPL SRP is made possible through the support of the Friends of the Howland Public Library, the Beacon Teacher's Association, the DC United Teacher's Council, and the Wee Play Community Project.
Overdue Amnesty Begins June 24th
Howland Public Library will offer amnesty for overdue fines from June 24th through July 14th. Return HPL overdue books, CDs, DVDs, and other items to the library during this time and pay no fines. Exceptions: does not apply to fees for lost or damaged items or to overdue items from other libraries.
Most library materials are purchased with public money for the good of the whole community. All we want is HPL's stuff back, so that your friends and neighbors can enjoy it, too.
