Get ready for Summer Reading! You can stop by your library or bookmobile and sign up starting on Monday, June 2. The library’s Summer Reading program is a fun way to stay engaged in reading and learning over the summer, and this year we are celebrating all thing science.
A group of very talented kids and teens created bookmarks to promote our upcoming Summer Reading program. The teen theme this year is “Spark a Reaction” and the kids’ theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read!” See the 2014 winners, and be sure to pick up a bookmark when you visit the library!
Mark your calendar for the MU ParentLink Spring Tiger Family Fest on April 26, 2014 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event has free activities for your family including a bounce house, face painting and more. You can even visit Bookmobile, Jr. while you are there!
Imagine balloons and confetti dropping from the ceiling as you read this! A big congratulations to the winners of our Pete the Cat giveaway. Jason M. and Sang M. each won a copy of “Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons” by Eric Litwin.
If you didn’t win, don’t worry. You can always check out Pete the Cat books from your library!
Nursery rhymes remind me of my childhood. I remember my grandma and aunt teaching me “Old King Cole” and “Humpty Dumpty.” I personally have never written a nursery rhyme, but I bet there are kids in your lives who have written some cool rhymes and would love to share them. Guess what? Now is their chance!
EZTales, a database of animated story books (available with your library card!), has created a contest calling for the “Greatest Nursery Rhymes Never Told.” Kids ages 5-12 can enter for a chance to have their rhyme animated and to win other prizes. Check out the official rules and get rhyming!
