Teen Summer Reading
To introduce the Summer Reading Program before teens head off on vacation, the library is holding the Teen Summer Reading Kick-off Party & Scavenger Hunt from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, June 17. Teens will navigate their way around the library in an interplanetary scavenger hunt. They will also have pizza and watermelon while learning about the Teen Summer Reading Program.
For the Reading Program, teens read, log their books and earn points which can be redeemed for raffle prizes at the August 12 Teen Prize Party. They can also enter weekly drawings for t-shirts and books. To be eligible for the Grand Prizes of a Fitbit or passes to Comic Con, readers must also fill out an activity-based “Bingo Board.” If you can’t make the kick-off party, you can still sign up at the library on or after June 17. Please register for the Kick-off Party at lewisborolibrary.org/teen.htm.
Summer Reading for All Ages
In honor of the 50th anniversary of man’s first walk on the moon, this year’s Summer Reading theme is “A Universe of Stories.” The library staff has been busy planning programs, ordering books and gathering prizes for the Summer Reading Programs, which encourage reading through interactive activities and prizes.
Children receive prizes for the number of books/minutes they read and teens earn points toward raffle prizes. To be eligible for grand prizes, readers of all ages must fill out activity-based “Bingo Boards.”
New this year is an Adult Summer Reading Program, with a themed book discussion, wine and cheese wrap party, and a Grand Prize lottery for those who complete the “Bingo Board.” Details about all programs are on the library website (lewisborolibrary.org).
Library to Show ‘Pride’
At 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, the library is showing the film “Pride,” which is inspired by a true story that took place in England in 1984. A group of London-based gay activists set out to raise money for the families of striking miners in Wales, and bond over their common foes of Margaret Thatcher, the police and the conservative press.
