What do I do this summer...

Visit your library!!!

This year marks my 5th summer reading program and it also marks my 1st year to supervise one! I have had a "Funtastic" time "Stepping to the beat" about the importance of literacy, using every resource from my figurative "Paws, Claws, Scales, and Tales", learning how to "Get a Clue" about a library's worth to its community.

As stated in an earlier comment, the Pearl Public Library is offering a 6-week summer reading program, "Catch the Reading Bug", designed for K-6th children and a 5-week program, "Metamorphosis", for young adults ages 13-17!

There is a wealth of knowledge and excitement in your library and the best part is that the services your library offers are ALL FREE! Below is a summer reading program schedule for the Pearl Public Library but you can go to for other libraries' schedules.
