Summer Reading Program Update

It’s hard to believe that we’re already wrapping up our first week of summer reading program 2024. It’s been SO MUCH FUN and there’s lots yet to come.

A large crowd enjoyed food, games and friendship at our KICKOFF COOKOUT.

BRODINI presented a delightful comedy magic show.

We’ve already signed up 143 kids, but there is still plenty of time to sign up. No obligation, no pressure, just fun stuff and rewards for things you’re probably doing already like reading and playing.

Next up is our STUFFED ANIMAL SLEEPOVER on Tuesday, June 18th. Bring your stuffed friend for a special evening storytime at 6:30, then leave them to spend the night. We are closed Wednesday for Juneteenth, so you can pick up your friend on Thursday along with pictures of what they got up to while sleeping over. (Shenanigans are guaranteed.)

And mark your calendar for Wednesday, June 26th at 10:30 am. The INTERNATIONAL OWL CENTER will be visiting TCU Lonsdale Elementary with a real owl!
