At the library, we are gearing up for Summer Reading (Be Creative @ Your Library). In fact, tomorrow is our first official Summer Reading Program – a kick-off event at one of the branches. We have a fun filled evening planned:
- Steel Drum music by Tropical Breeze – one of the available musical acts from Pan Yard, Inc. in Akron, Ohio. We have hired groups from this company several times in the past four years. They always put on an excellent show.
- Face Painting
- A “Be Creative” Craft – design your own treat bags (cloth bags purchased from Oriental Trading) with fabric markers
- Refreshments – hot dogs, chips, cookies and punch
- Sidewalk Chalk (weather permitting – and right now it doesn’t look like that permission is coming from Mother Nature).
- Prize drawings – six library bags stuffed with lots of fun prizes.
So, if you live in the NE Ohio area and are looking for something to do on June 4, drop me an email for more info.
I’ve been reading a lot lately, too, having finished five books that I need to write about. Maybe by this weekend I’ll finally get around to that post.
