“On Your Mark, Get Set… Read!” is the theme of the Pioneer Heritage Library’s
Summer Library Program.
It runs from May 26 through Aug. 2nd and will feature reading logs, programs, prizes, storytime, crafts and other events. Reading logs will be available for children from preschool to sixth grade. As children complete the logs they will win prizes and be eligible for grand prize drawings.
The importance of school children reading during the summer has been well documented. If a child reads 6 or more books during the summer, he or she should maintain their current reading level.
Special programs will be held in June and July with four visits from the Blank Park Zoo, “Animal Olympics”, a juggler, a professional puppet troop, “Bug Olympics”, and more.
Grand Prize will be a bicycle.
Programs, prizes and books were made possible by grants from the Community Foundation of Central Iowa and Lennox Industries
