Summer is Almost Here!

Just a few more days before summer begins. We can’t believe it either. It’s almost summer and the memories are just waiting to happen. Some kids just sleep in every day and take it one day at a time. Others plan every moment out to maximize the fun. So, our question for you is: “What are you going to do this summer?”

 

Of course, our first suggestion is to participate in the Summer Reading Program at the Library. Details are here. Don’t let it pass you by. This year’s prizes are pretty sweet.

 

Need something else? Here’s a couple of ideas:

• Visit a big city: Mom and Dad probably aren’t going to let you go to Chicago or Cincinnati by yourself, but they might let you plan the trip. Show off your skills with a budget and do some research to see what’s available. We’ve got the books to help!

• Volunteer at your local agency, hospital, shelter or church. There are always those who need help and those who provide it. Interested in medicine later on? Find a hospital to volunteer in and soak up some atmosphere while you help people.

 

There are so many other things to do. Learn to play guitar. Take up painting. Play a sport. Learn macramé. Figure out how computers really work. The list goes on and on.

Whatever you decide to do, the best place to start is the library. Stop by your local branch today and get started!!
