Montgomery Locals June 22, 2106

By Staff | Jun 22, 2016

The Summer Reading program at Montgomery Library is in full swing so if your kids or grandkids want something fun to do (and you want them to get off their electronic tablets), take them to the library on Wednesday afternoons. To keep it fun and interesting they vary the program each week but stories, crafts, and games alternate, while snacks and small prizes for each child are featured at every meeting.

In addition to the once a week get together, kids of all ages can keep a booklist of all the books they read over the summer. Every child who turns in a booklist will get a prize, but there will be a selection of larger prizes for those who read the most books by August 5th.

The Summer Alive program is open to children on Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00-12:30 at the park. Parents need to fill out a permission slip for children to attend. Breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge. So far over 60 children showed up during last week’s opening.

THOT “Spring flew swiftly by, and summer came; and if the village had been beautiful at first, it was now in the full glow and luxuriance of its richness. The great trees, which had looked shrunken and bare in the earlier months, had now burst into strong life and health . . .”?-Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist
