May Task

While most people think of the summer as a great time to take a break and schedule a vacation, at the Library we are gearing up for our busiest time. We jam as much fun and reading into June and July as we possibly can to help your children avoid the summer slide. So don’t forget when you make plans to keep your school-age kids busy, we have FREE programs that will keep them engaged. We have 18 events ranging from wildlife, frontier skills, story times, characters from favorite movies, hands on building fun, book clubs, movie extravaganzas, fossils and much more. And that is just in the month of June. Kids who sign up for summer reading and turn in reading logs can qualify for incentive parties and prizes.

We will also have programs and activities for teens and adults. From the Readers and Writers Jubilee on June 8th and a program on Indian henna, to the history of Morgan County courthouses, and the life of Ms. Daisy Nolan, our summer programs will cover all kinds of topics and interests.

If you want more solitary entertainment, try out our new electronic resource hoopla. Now you can download eBooks, eAudioBooks, comics, music, movies and television shows with your DPL card.

If you are taking the Adult Reading Challenge this year, the task for May is an island. Read a book that uses an island for the setting. If you get a chance to go to the Gulf this summer, check out all of the cool things to do on Dauphin Island, the barrier island that is part of the state of Alabama.

Happy Reading!
