School’s out for summer, and there is no time like the summer to head to the local library and enjoy a great book! The Fayette Normal Memorial Library will host a summer reading program for children called Fizz, Boom, and Read. The summer reading program this year is all about science. The kids will be doing science experiments and learning how science is a part of everyday lives. There will be crafts, food, prizes, books and a whole lot of fun! The kids will win prizes by participating and answering questions pertaining to the theme. The program is for children grades Kindergarten through 4th grade (the grade they just finished in school). It runs from June 17—July 31 every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00—3:30 p.m. On Monday, June 16 from 2:00—3:00 p.m, the library will host a kick-off day. Mr. Stechschulte, the Fayette High School Science Teacher, will entertain the kids with interesting and fun science experiments. After the science show, the program will end with an ice cream treat. Mr. Stoltzfus, the Fayette Elementary Science teacher, will demonstrate rocket launching one of the days. On Thursday, July 31 from 2:00—3:00 p.m, the program will conclude with Magician Kenneth Ladd performing a magic show. Sign up for the summer reading program is not necessary. If you have any questions, call the Library or stop in at the Children’s circulation desk. The library is also collecting empty water bottles for a craft for the reading program.
Dates to note for the summer: The Library will be closed Friday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day as well as Saturday, August 2 for the Bullthistle Festival. Have a wonderful summer and happy reading!
