Summer Reading Program

is just around the corner!!

The Carlinville Public Library invites your family to participate in the 2019 Summer Reading Program,

"It's Showtime at Your Library"

This will be a series of activities, books, and special events exploring Art, Dance, Music and Theater for children infant to 3rd grade.

Kids who read succeed.  Reading is important because students who read well and enjoy reading attain a higher success rate during their school years.  Reading skills also improve dramatically when students discover reading is fun!  Programs will include independent, partner and whole-group reading activities.  Crafts and other hands-on activities will encourage further inquiry.

The first summer reading program session will be on Thursdays, June 6th, 13th, and 20th.  A second session will be on Thursdays, July 11th, 18th, and 25th.  Please register for the program by filling out a registration form (available at the library) by May 17th.

10AM  LapSit For Birth to 4 Years (A.K.A. Story Time)

We look forward to helping your child maintain or improve her or his reading skills while learning about Art, Dance, Music and Theater in a fun-filled series of programs and activities!
