Kids are encouraged to “Dig into Reading” for this summer’s reading programs at the Pioneer Branch Library. Summer Reading will begin on Monday, June 10 and end on July 24, 2013. Children who continue to read during the summer keep their skills sharpened and do better in school when they return in the fall. Parents can help their children maintain their reading skills by bringing them to the library reading programs during the summer.
To start off summer reading at Pioneer library, kids will have an opportunity to learn about energy and electricity. Northwestern Electric will provide an energy bike demonstration, a high voltage demonstration, and a tabletop demonstration at 1:00 pm on June 10, 17, and 24th respectively.
