West Unity Branch Library Summer Reading programs with the theme “Dig into Reading” will begin on Tuesday, June 4 and finish on Thursday, July 25. Children in the community are invited to come and share in the stories, fun activities, and learning experiences that are a part of summer reading. Testing shows that kids who read for fun in the summer do better and forget less when they go back to school. The summer months offer great opportunities for families to help improve reading and writing by attending summer programs at the library.
Every week there will be presenters from the community on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm, a story time on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm, a movie matinee on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm, and crafts and games on Thursdays at 1:00 pm. In addition, the Tail Waggin’ Tutors schedule will continue on Mondays from 4:30 to 5:30 pm, on Tuesdays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm and 6:00 to 7:00 pm, and on Thursdays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. “Dig into Reading” will be the overall theme of the programs.
