Summer Reading Program at Burnsville Public Library

     Please join the Burnsville Public Library as we get ready for some reading fun during our Summer Reading Program “Libraries Rock”.  As the last day of school is quickly approaching, children are invited to attend this program being held Thursdays in June from 12:30 – 2:00.  The library will be offering a variety of programs and giveaways for children from birth to 12 years old featuring activities, crafts, stories and special guests in the hopes of encouraging children to develop a love of reading.

Join us for our first program on June 7 where we will focus on the now popular activity – rock painting.  Assistant Teacher Hayley Freeman will read a book pertaining to our theme, “Libraries Rock,” while encouraging children to ask questions upon completion of the reading of the book.  Hayley will also introduce the children to the creative and fun adventure of rock painting.  On June 14, join us for special visitors Family Consumer Science Agent Emily Cox and Expanded Food Nutrition Educator Diane Ham  from the Tishomingo County Cooperative Extension Service as they read stories and discuss ways to live a healthy lifestyle.  On June 21, our special visit will be Field Educator Eddie Begonia, with Families First For Mississippi.  He will read a story and give the children a chance to show off their dancing skills.  On June 28, former school music instructor Sherry Harper,  who currently offers personal music instruction, will wrap up our final program with none other than MUSIC!  Sherry has lots of experience working with children and knows how to put them at ease while making the art of teaching music FUN!  We plan to have weekly door prizes and goody bags for all the children who participate.

As soon as school is out for the summer, children may visit the library between the hours of 10:00 and 4:00, Monday through Friday to pre-register for the program.  All children who pre-register will receive a prize.  At that time, children will sign a contract with the librarian to indicate how many books they plan to read this summer.  Everyone who completes the program by fulfilling their contract will have their name put into a drawing for a grand prize to be awarded the last day.

Please come out and join in the fun this summer at the Burnsville Public Library.  For more information or to volunteer, please contact Burnsville Librarian, Charlotte Morris at 427-9258, Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:00 and 4:00.  Thank You!
