Shelbina Library To Hold Reading Program This Summer

The Shelbina Carnegie Public Library would like to invite the public to participate in its Summer Reading Program.

This years theme is Tails and Tales.

All of the stories will be animal related and activities will abound with the animal centered theme.  The program starts June 10 and runs through July 29. The younger groups will meet each Thursday morning, while the Middle School group will meet bi-weekly throughout the same time period. The teens and adults will not meet at the library, as those participants are reading for rewards. The groupings are as follows:

Two-year-old through five-six-year old will meet Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. There will be feature stories and activities geared for this age group.

Second graders through fifth graders will be going to India and studying the creatures of the Jungle Book. Lots of activities planned, and will begin with a movie on the first meeting day of June 10.

For middle school students, the library, with the assistance of the Shelbina Police Department, will be studying forensics and crime solving skills. The staff will be looking forward to this new group, which will meet on Fridays beginning June 11.

Any teens and adults wanting to participate in the Summer Reading Program can read for Pizza. Just like the Book-It rewards from the local Pizza Hut, patrons can read 10 animal themed books and receive a gift certificate for a pizza.

The library is looking forward to meeting in person this year, and having lots of fun.

Anyone wanting to register their child, may call the library at 573-588-2271, or message them on Facebook at Shelbina Library.
