Summer Reading PlansYesterday we visited our local library for the first time since moving here. Boy, were the girls excited! Alexis was thrilled to find manga books at the library. The previous library system had nothing of the sort. She brought home a big stack of them.
Lorelai, who doesn't like to read, loves going to the library to play but not to get books. This time, however, was different. This time, the librarian told her about some summer fun they have going on at the library.
- On Sundays they have an ice cream social.
- On Mondays, they have various activities. (One week is Japanese Drumming, another is Water Games, another is Swamp Girl Adventures.)
- Reading challenges are held for teens and younger children.
Alexis loves to read but avoids it due to her Dyslexia. Still, there is a teen reading challenge going on called Teen Bingo. Each task is an entry into a drawing for an MP3 player.
We also quickly discovered that outside the library is a park complete with playground, numerous sports fields/courts, and a concession stand with pavilion. Oh! Won't the trips be fun now?
I'm adding these two activities/challenges to our summer study plans.
