With summer nearly upon the entire youth of Lake County, Lake County Library’s Summer Reading Programs are a mere two weeks away.
Children of the community are invited to sign-up, as library assistant Elizabeth LaShomb promises loads of fun for the kids in the community.
There will be two programs, separated by age group: the Kindergarten through 6th grade program, and the teen program.
The program intends to capture imaginations of both age groups. Younger kids will be learning along with theme of “Dig into Reading,” and LaShomb, with the support of the library and community, will groom children into readers, lead them in different crafts, have guests sing songs and tell stories, make kaleidoscope kits, and attend an antique rock road show at the Lake County Museum.
“So excited that we’re going to be working with the museum to show the kids its treasures,” she said, referencing the 3,000 year-old grass slipper. Community volunteers from organizations such as the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife will lend their hands in cultivating the County’s youth.
The purpose of the program is to keep kids reading during the summer, ensure their growth, and inspire them to find something new and interesting, said LaShomb.
For the K-6 program, registrations are June 18, 20, 20 and 24 for Paisley, Lakeview, Christmas Valley and Silver Lake, respectively.
For the teen program, registrations are June 18, 18, and 20 for Paisley, Lakeview, and North Lake, respectively. Times vary.
