The Booneville Library is planning a busy summer of reading programs.
Readers of all ages will be able to explore all things underground this summer as the Booneville Library presents "Dig Into Reading."
The 2013 Summer Reading Program is open to children entering grades K-4 with programs, prize drawings, story hours and more. Activities will include programs on gardening, dinosaurs, burrowing animals and ancient Egypt on Monday afternoons in June. Programs start at 3:30 p.m.
Special programs, including visits from the Little Rock Zoo and Tommy Terrific will be on Thursday afternoons and are open to all ages.
Registration for Dig Into Reading begins on Monday, May 20 at 3:30 p.m. with a kick-off party.
Starting June 4, children age 12 to 19 are invited to join the library’s Anime Club where on Tuesday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. they can watch anime, talk about anime and play anime themed games.
Every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. the library fills with stories and songs when preschoolers come for Story Hour. Kids come to sing, make a craft, have a snack and, of course, listen to stories.
Also this summer, beginning June 6, a movie will be shown on Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m., which is before the library is open for normal business. The program is open to elementary school children and parents are welcome to watch the movies as well.
All programs are free of charge. For more information, call the library at 675-2735 or stop by to pick up a calendar of events.
