Summer Reading Program
‘Traveling’ Toward Close
Since the end of classes in June, many young readers having been taking part in Turner Public Library’s interesting Summer Reading Program. It has been quite a "trip" for them, complete with suitcase and luggage tags.
Each trip to the Library has required the reader to select a slip from a box with a type of book written on it; it might read
history, or nature, or fiction, or animals, and the reader would have to find a book in the Library in that genre. Once read, the
young reader would attach that slip to the luggage tag on his or her suitcase and do it all over again.
A young reader has attached eight luggage tags to a suitcase indicating eight books have been read during the Summer Reading Program at Turner Public Library. It will end with an ice cream social this month.
Over the course of about ten weeks, hopefully readers have read books covering many different subjects, expanded their interests and knowledge, familiarized themselves with the different parts of the Library, become more aware of the range of books that are available and perhaps challenged them to try anything when it comes to reading. Who knows, the reader might even have found an interest in a subject or an author that had never been of interest before.
It will come to an end in August with a very proper climax to a summer of interesting reading -- an ice cream social! Don’t you wish you had taken the "trip"?
