WHAT'S HAPPENING...

On Your Mark, Get Set—READ!

Sports is the theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program at Stair District Library—a prelude to the Smithsonian Institution’s “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America” exhibit visiting the library this fall.

The program kicks off June 22 and continues each Wednesday until July 27. For the first three weeks of the program, sessions will be organized in a station format with books and stories, sports and games, music and art, and snacks and prizes.

The last three weeks feature special entertainment for all ages at 11 a.m. only: Flying Aces frisbee on July 13, Drummunity on July 20 and Cirque Amongus on July 27.

Call the library, 458-6510, by June 20 to register for the program and choose the 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. session. Children can join in throughout the summer program, but early registration helps staff with planning.
