    Build a Better World with the Daviess County Public Library

    by Taryn Norris

    Every June and July, school-aged children look forward to the glorious reprieve from school called Summer Vacation. So of course, parents are annually tasked with rearranging schedules and figuring out what to do with their children from eight in the morning until mid-afternoon. Some parents enroll their children in day camps or summer camps. Other parents find a babysitter or family member to help them balance work schedules with childcare. And then, there are those of you champion stay-at-home parents who suddenly have kids running around the house you just finished cleaning! Whatever your situation, you’re exhausted! Tired of trips to Holiday World with the kids and their friends, Walmart runs with kids who run all over the store, and definitely sick and tired of watching Daniel Tiger, Lego Ninjago, Pokémon, or Peppa Pig on repeat.

    Well, that’s where the library comes in – we’re here to provide a bit of respite from the crazy, haphazard nature of summer. This year’s programs for children – up through age twelve – will feature FREE weekly events every Wednesday afternoon in June and July, in addition to special evening programs and our regularly scheduled storytimes. Summer Reading 2017’s theme is “Build a Better World” – so bring your kids to the library, then have them read and log books to win free prize books and the chance to win a Grand Prize! Special programs include a visit from Belle, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and exotic, aquatic, and backyard creatures! Check out our events calendar at http://www.dcplibrary.org/events for a comprehensive list of events, as well as details about the programs. Some events require tickets, so please obtain tickets in advance.

    Maybe you have a little one who might not be ready for some of the “big kid” events. If this applies to your child, who hasn’t started kindergarten, please sign up for our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Children participate in this program by reading and logging (with the help of a parent or guardian, of course!) 1,000 books before their first day of kindergarten and will receive special prizes every 100 books completed, as well as free prize books, and of course, exemplary preparedness for school! To sign up today, “Register Now” and choose the program 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.
