May is finally here and it brings the promise of warmer days, we hope! After the fun Mother Nature had at our expense in April, one can only hope May will calm down.
With the 1st of May come planning for all our Summer programs. The first event that you should take note of is our staff training days, which will take place on May 15th and 16th. We close these days to meet with the entire staff, discuss improvements for the coming year, and prepare for all of the other Summer reading programs.
Dana is already busy getting ready for the Children's Summer Reading Program. This is by far our largest program. Last year, we have 607 White County children enrolled, and they read a total of 14,619 books! We're hoping to have even more this year. The Children's Summer Reading Program will kick off on May 30th.
Erin has been very creative in her planning of the teen Summer Reading Program. It will kick off on July 9th and finish on July 30th. There will also be weekly prizes, as well as a grand prize.
Patty is preparing for the Adult Summer Reading Program. There will be weekly drawings, as well as a grand prize drawing on the final week. The program will begin on May 28th and end on July 26th. You can sign up for the program after the middle of May.
As always, there is more information and details in the rest of the newsletter, but feel free to call us at 836-3613!
