Calling all older kids and teens!
Where can you play games, confront your “Fear Factor,” make time for Minecraft, get your “Bob Ross” on, learn to code and name that musical?
At MidPointe Library! Where else?
Now wipe those looks of doubt from your faces and get with the program --
MidPointe Library’s free annual Summer Reading Program, that is. The decades-long salute to summer is open to all ages from birth through adult now through July 31 at all four MidPointe locations. This year’s program is themed “Libraries Rock!” (an apt description if there ever was one).
There’s something for everybody at “Summer Reading.” Children, teens and adults participate in the program by keeping track of what books they’ve read or the audiobooks they’ve listened to. Younger children can participate if books are read to them. Prizes are awarded for reading/listening efforts. Grand prizes are also awarded.
MidPointe’s Summer Reading is divided into the following age groups: birth through pre-kindergarten, kindergarten through grade 5, and young adult (those entering grades 6-12). The adult program is for individuals 18 and older.
But reading isn’t the only item on our summer agenda. This year’s schedule includes fun activities, special guests (human and animal) and a live music concert series at all four MidPointe locations.
In fact, a rockin’ huge variety of programs for older children and teens can be found at all locations:
