A "Dark" Twist on Summer Reading
(Le Mars) -- The Le Mars Public Library is spilling over with some "dark" activities this summer. No, it's not with the Dark Arts of Harry Potter, or "Twilight" in the woods...Library Director Sue Kroesche says it's "Dream Big-Read."
The summer reading season was kicked off yesterday afeternoon at the Le Mars Public Library with Magician Keith West.
Story and activity times for kids age pre-school through 5th grade happen multiple times weekly starting this week through July. Kroesche says the number of kids participating in the free summer library program this year is huge. Because of that, space is limited and volunteers are needed. High school age kids and adults in the community are encouraged to come help at the library during the weekly events. Just give them a call and they will connect you with a time that works into your schedule.
Participation is also up due to new teen programming. Kroesche says students will "Own the Night," with teen librarian Amber Flynn.
Middle school students meet Tuesday's and high school students get together on Thursday's, both from 2:30 to 4:30. Programs include turning storyboards into computer animated programs among other fun activities.
The teen season at the library concludes with an in-the-dark swimming party at the Y.
Also this summer, the teen section at the library will be re-painted with grant funded paint. The library will receive the liquid color through the program-Paint Iowa Beautiful, sponsored by Dimond Vogel.
