June Fun for Children at Freeman Library

         Looking for some fun and free activities to do with the children now that school is out?  Bring them over to Freeman Library.   We have a summer reading program and lots of great activities to do as well.   All activities are free, though most require tickets which are usually given out starting 30 minutes before the programs.

The summer reading program simply allows children and families to read books at their own pace during the summer.  We have teen volunteers available during the day to register children on a computer for summer reading.  If they read at least 10 books, they can come in and receive a reading certificate, a free book to keep and they can put their name on a paper footprint that we will be putting up on our walls.  If they read 50 books, they will get a blue ribbon for being a great reader.  For babies, we have a summer reading program for them to do 10 activities with a parent or caregiver and they will receive a certificate, a free board book and a footprint to put on the walls.  

For fun programs, we will have special performers coming in or craft programs on Thursday afternoons.  Most times we will have two sessions: 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm.  Tickets are required.  They are free and available starting 30 minutes before each  program.  Upcoming performers - Magician Mick Corley on Thursday, June 13 at 2:30 & 3:30 pm; Puppeteer Nitsana Lazerus on Thursday, June 20 at 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm; and a craft program "Not a Box" where we will create a take-home craft from a variety of boxes.  There will be sessions at 2:30 and 3:30 pm.
