The 2015 Summer Reading Program officially ends this Saturday, August 8. Freeman Library has over 1,000 children signed up and hundreds have finished reading at least 10 books. To end a summer of great reading, we are having a celebration on Thursday, August 6 from 2:30-4 pm. We will have face painting and balloon animals by Party Animals of Texas. We also will have tables for young artists to make a superhero mask and a superhero button!
To top off all the excitement -- Orbit, the mascot for the Houston Astros Baseball Club, will be in the Children's Department to greet our many great readers. Orbit is busy this summer visiting libraries to congratulate the children on reading, so he will be here for a limited time :2:45-3:30 pm.
