Fayette Summer Reading Program starts June 15 6.3.09

Written by David Green.

Local artists will lead Fayette youngsters to adventures this summer when Normal Memorial Library presents “Be Creative@Your Library.”

Three guest artists will join in the summer reading program to help youngsters develop their talents.

Before that happens, children will kick off the summer June 15 with a scavenger hunt and pizza party at the park.

Painter Ann Schang will be featured June 22, followed by photographer Kristen Runyon July 6 and musician Karen King July 15. The summer program concludes with a performance at the Fayette Opera House July 29 when children will have the opportunity to show off their talents.

Students will also have the chance to try out their writing skills by keeping a journal in a book they’ll construct on the first day of the program.

Children should attend sessions based on the grade they just finished in school:

• Mondays, kindergarten and first grade;

• Tuesdays, second and third grades;

• Wednesdays, fourth and fifth grades.

On the three days when a guest is scheduled, all age groups should attend. Children can also attend their regular session that week.

On the days without a guest speaker, the program will include crafts, games, prizes for reading books and other activities.

The summer programs are scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

For more information, call the library (237-2115) or stop at the circulation desk.
