Summer reading program planned at OC library

To keep children ready for school to begin in August, it’s best to keep their minds active during the summer. One of the best ways to accomplish this task is to keep them reading. And there’s no better way than the Obion County Public Library Summer Reading program, which is staging its kickoff program Monday at 10 a.m. with a Mad Science program from Nashville. After the program, children will be able to enjoy pizza, compliments of Snappy Tomato, and register for the reading program. Parents may also register their children online at the library’s Web site. The theme of this year’s event is “Starship Adventure at Your Library.” During the six-week program, children will then be asked to read or listen to at least 10 books during each week to earn rewards. Prizes vary from small toys to food products made available by local resturants. Rules will be distributed at registration. “Because of our very generous sponsors, this fun summer program is free for the children of Obion County,” a library spokesman said. Additional programs during the summer include Magic Ron on June 16, Chris Egelston on June 23, Flumpa on June 30, Kevin Kidd on July 7 and Finale: Safari Greg on July 14. Each program is at the library and begins at 10 a.m. For more information call the library at 885-7000. Published in The Messenger 6.4.08
