Summer Reading continued this month with the theme of “Dream Big- Read!”. On the 18th we learned about adventure/survival skills from Trent Filer. Laura Bryant was our visiting reader for the day and read a book in sign language. Our closing program was on the 25th and we had a review of all we had covered over the weeks. Colleen Hyde was our guest reader. The children created a “roar enhancer” to scare away monsters and had fun eating ice cream sundaes (with ice cream from Nanipops!). Check out pictures of the fun we’ve had on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ovmlibrary.
The winner of the Mystery Basket raffle was Fred Hobson. Fred is a very faithful library patron and we hope enjoys the books!
The library’s book discussion group is reading My Life in France by Julia Child for discussion this month and we will be getting together to view the movie based on the book. There are plenty of copies of the book available, so stop by the library and pick one up. We would love to have you join us!
The Girl Scouts are running two fun summer programs at the library on Fridays. From 10:30 to 11:30 girls in grades K-3 are meeting for “Discovery Girls” to help develop a love of reading. Then, from 12:30-1:30 “Uniquely Me” is for girls in grades 4-8 and will cover having a positive self-image. The programs are free.
