  • Library starts summer reading off with a bang

As an added challenge this year, the library staff agreed to participate in the fun at the summer reading closing ceremony. Not only can you record your minutes read and activities completed, you can submit reviews and receive reading recommendations, based on your age and any other preferences you wish to share. "To experience something new they haven't experienced before or experience something that they love to do".

Students entering grades 6-12 win cool prizes for reading whatever they like. "The punches are given for visiting the library", McPeck said. Each visit also equals a sticker on their name tags.

Evans noted that the summer reading programs have been going on for years, with a different theme each year. The site will alert readers when they have earned a prize. There will be prizes and incentives awarded until July 13.

The children's summer kickoff is June 2 from 3 p.m.to 5 p.m.

Every Thursday, June 7-July 5, Families are invited to the library to color together and explore the library.

Pitzer described the programs, saying that they all go along with music.

"Whether it's songs, or instruments, or the sounds of nature", she said.

Independent summer reading programs for all ages run from Friday through August 16.

The 2018 Summer Reading Program is open to youngsters preschool through age 12 with programs, storytimes, reading goals, and more.

Donald Trump says North Korea summit could be back on
Tania Lindsay-Jean, an American resident in Singapore, said: "I'm actually quite relieved it's not going to happen". Earlier on Twitter, Trump had noted "very good news to receive the warm and productive statement from North Korea".

"The carnival is our way of wrapping everything up", Pitzer said. "We like ending the summer with a bang". "It's just an invitation to come and read what you enjoy".

The Library Comic Con, for example, is an all-ages activity. Grove said about one-third of prizes were given out in August past year. The celebration will be held on the grounds of the library, with music, games, crafts, a balloon artist, and a giant inflatable. The pair begin thinking about what they'll do shortly after the upcoming years' theme is announced. Library story times help to encourage emergent literacy skills through pre-reading experiences for preschoolers. There are also Facebook pages, Instagram accounts and Twitter for CDPL (and the Carnegie Museum).

"Once a reading log is completed, it can be turned in as an entry into the grand prize drawing for the appropriate age group".

Summer reading programs are supported by the Friends of the Durango Public Library, Durango Parks and Recreation and Maria's Bookshop.

"We're hosting a Local Authors Day", Davidson said. The ukulele kit includes a tuner and beginner's lesson book, as well. The final day to register is June 18.

On June 28 will be the teddy bear sleep over, a new event this year. We'll also have a paper version available. "We've hosted two prior ones, and both were huge successes".

The exhibit will be open through July 27.

Keeping children reading throughout the summer is important because it helps with retention, said Celine Swan, youth librarian. For teens, there are Fandom and Write-Away clubs.
