Every hero has a story at the LaFayette Library


It is that time of the year again, time for the summer reading program. The 2015 theme is: Every Hero Has a Story.

The library staff invites everyone to come to the kick-off to summer reading on Friday, May 29, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm CST. Children, teens and adults can sign up and start reading for fun prizes. The reading program has been a fixture at the Bradshaw and LaFayette Libraries for over 20 years. This program helps children retain reading levels and comprehension throughout the summer. Trips to the treasure chest and coupons to local restaurants are incentives for checking out and reading books from the library. Please visit the library for a copy of the reading rules.

In addition to reading, other activities on May 29 include: pony rides, giant slide, snow cones, soda toss, superhero mask craft, superhero bowling, lollipop game, spiderman bean bag toss, cake walk, superhero photo booth and more. You do not want to miss this kick-off to reading!

What summer is complete without animals, drums, juggling, parties and more? The library will offer exciting programs every Thursday at 1:00 pm starting June 4. Additional programs will be offered on Mondays. Come by the library to pick up a schedule with the times and program themes.

If you are a tween/teen and you enjoy having fun, then the library encourages you to attend the programs that are just for you. Join us for the first party on June 12 at 3:30 pm. We will host a “Flashback Friday” 90s Edition Party! Dress in 90s attire. Best dressed will win a prize! Stop by the library for the entire list of programs.

The reading program is not just for children. For the past few years adults have enjoyed participating as well. For every five books read adults will be entered into a drawing for various prizes throughout the summer. Programs include: Game Day, Movie Day and a Potluck Lunch Party. Please drop by to pick up a copy of the schedule of events.

Reading together as a family is a wonderful way to bond and establish a good routine of reading. We hope that you will read with us this summer.
