Dig into a Good Book - Dinosaurs Books

 

All kids love dinosaur books, and that is why I was so excited about this years theme, "Dig up a Good Book.”  Our Summer Reading Club starts on June 3rd. You can pre-register here. 

Children don't need to follow any type of reading list; rather, it's more important to let children choose items that like. This will help children develop a life long love of reading.  

Discover a Prehistoric World @ Your Library

It's time to pre-register online for the Texas Summer Reading program Starting this Friday, June 3rd, you can start reading and loging your books.

Children of all ages (infants - 12 years old) will have the opportunity to earn a free book for their personal collection! To earn your book you will need you read or listen to 10 books, or 500 pages or 500 minutes. I know that for a lot of you, those numbers can be somewhat intimidating.  So, I wanted to suggest a few things before you get started to help you achieve your goal.  

Summer Fun @ the Library

How does Your Garden Grow?

 

Gardening is a great activity for children.  Not only is it fun, but it can also be educational when children create a garden journal.   So, go have fun and get those hands dirty!
