SPL to host 'Reading For Others,' Teen VIP After Hours
June 28, 2011
Summer is here, and the Summer Reading Program is in full swing at the Sanibel Public Library.
This year, children and teenagers reveal their philanthropic spirit by "Reading For Others!" The youngsters read and perform challenges outlined by Youth Librarian Barb Dunkle to earn books. Each book earned also earns one for a child in the Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida.
A presentation will be made to the Children's Hospital of all the books youngsters have selected for them on Friday, July 29 during the final program.
Programs are held on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. at the library as follows:
• July 5 — Scavenger Hunt
• July 12 — Show Time for Kids
• July 19 — Curious Kids from WGCU
• July 26 — John Storms' World of Reptiles and Southwest Florida's Children's Hospital
Teen VIP After Hours Programs are held each Tuesday from 6 to 7 p.m. These nights are reserved for teenagers only (sixth graders and older):
• July 5 — Pizza Party / Scavenger Hunt
• July 12 — Steampunk Art
• July 19 — "Chip" Bag Purse / Tire Belts
• July 26 — Silk Screen T-Shirts
(Please contact Miss Barb for a list of items needed to complete your crafts!)
Summer Reading Programs are funded in part with the support of the Sanibel Public Library Foundation, Inc. and their generous donors. Please call the Library at 472-2483 for additional information.
