Summer is a time to relax and have fun and get outdoors and be active, but don't forget to keep your mind active too! One of the most important ways to keep your mind active in the summer is to READ! Kids work very hard on their reading skills during the school year and we don't want kids to lose those skills so please be sure to read! I have posted some links to some good book lists if you need some suggestions, but the best bet is to go to the library and find something that catches your attention! Or, if there is a particular book that you want to read ask to get it through inter-library loan.
Join us at EES for our Literacy Night and annual summer Book Give-Away on June 12th at 6:00! I will present some info. on literacy and Ms. Swan will be here to give an update on the library's summer reading programs and you'll get to pick out at least one new book too!
We will also be having a special book event at EES this summer: Marty Kelly, author of The Bran Muffins of Doom, and many other great books, is coming as part of the CLIF grant provided to the Effingham Public Library. For more details check the library's website: http://effingham.lib.nh.us/.
