It’s bound to be a buggy summer at Fayette’s Norma’l Memorial Library when area children “Catch that Reading Bug” through the summer program starting Monday.
Children who just completed kindergarten and first grade are invited to attend Mondays. Those who completed grades two and three should attend Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, sessions are planned for those just finishing grades four and five.
Youngsters who can’t attend their specified age group might want to try one of the other days.
Children will learn about insects through stories, crafts, activities and special guests. They will also have the opportunity to win prizes by reading a number of books each week.
A highlight of the summer is scheduled at 11 a.m. July 1 when graduate students in entomology—the study of insects—from Ohio State University will bring their “creepy-crawlie” show to town.
Children have the opportunity to meet scientists, see live insects and get all their bug questions answered.
On June 24, local beekeeper Jerry Gonzales will visit, bringing in some equipment and a few bees and talking about what a beekeeper does to maintain a hive.
The summer reading program will conclude the last week of July with parties on each of the final three days.
For additional information, call the library at 419/237-2115.
