Preschool Storytime

Preschool Storytime

You’d think with school out that it would be a quiet summer at the Library but just the opposite is true! Here are just some of the things that are happening:

  • Reading games for children, teens, and adults
  • Family entertainment every Monday at 2pm
  • Storytimes Wednesday mornings at 11 am throughout July
  • Reading Buddies available on Thursday afternoons from 3-5pm
  • Adult and teen programs are scheduled throughout the summer
  • The Adult Book Club is reading and discussing the Old Man and the Sea this month

More and more students are getting a jump start on the school year asking for math review books, and CVHS students entering AP English are coming in with book lists of Classics they must have read before school even starts!


More than 85 tween (6th through 9th grade) Kid Power Volunteers are helping with the Kids’ Summer Reading Game. Over 1,200 children are signed up to play, and as of today at least 264 may have enjoyed their first level prizes of a free Round Table pizza, or taken a trip to the Lawrence Hall of Science or the Schulz Museum! 


Twenty-five high school students have volunteered for community service and show up at regular one to two hour shifts to help with simple shelving and straightening up. And, you know what else? Community members are finding it’s nice and cool in here compared to the scorching outside temperatures this week!

My 3 1/2 year-old daughter Ella loves what she fondly calls, “library school”. Even during the summer she’s been enjoying the later reading and craft time.
