Summer Reading 2020 is over. Covid-19 is still here and some of the kids are not going to be in school this year. Wow what a summer, the virus was suppose to slow down and did not, kids are still staying home, parents are deciding NOT to send their kids to school this year. The courier didn’t run, then it did. All items returned had to be quarantined for 3 days, then 4 days, hopefully nothing new comes down and makes it longer.

Among all that we ran a different summer reading program. No In-Library programs this year. Kids or parents picked up their crafts each week and took them home to make them.

But they did come. They did sign up for summer reading and they did read and do crafts, parent sent pictures to the library so we could post them on our Facebook page.

Here are the numbers for this years program:

12- kids 5 & under signed up. this group had 19 programs this summer.

20- kids 6-10 signed up. This group has 18 programs this summer.

8- kids 12- 18 signed up. This group had 17 programs this summer.

9- adults signed up. This group has 19 programs this summer.

We made dragons, swords, unicorns, fairies, frog masks, candles, pet rocks, slime, lip gloss, bath salts, aliens candy dots, gnomes, mini weapons of mass destruction and Ice cream in a bag. We guessed invisible movies and what the picture was on Facebook. We did 2 story walks and a minion hunt and a duck hunt. We were busy this summer!
