A Father-Daughter Bond

Do you read to your kids regularly? If so, read the New York Times article by clicking on the link below. Read it even if you don't make a practice of reading to your kids. It's a truly heart warming story.

Make a Splash!

Get ready for the Summer Reading Program! Kids of all ages are invited to sign-up all day, any day beginning Monday, June 21. Kids who sign-up will receive a journal to record the books they read, stickers, and a bookmark. An optional Book Bingo sheet, when completed, can be exchanged for a prize. There are several programs scheduled for Wednesday mornings including a story teller, a magician, and a mad scientist. Pick up a calendar of events the next time you are in the library or download a copy--the link is right under the photo of the tub. Make special note of the Family Concert titled "African Rhythm and World Music" with instrumentalists Jay Cook and Steven Leicach on Thursday, July 8 at 6:30. Spend your summer at the coolest place in town--the Springfield Town Library!
