August Summer Reading: Between the dates of August 4-29, everyone has the opportunity to win books and book bags after reading a total of 4 hours. Must read all 4 hours to enter your name once in the drawing! Age appropriate books will be awarded to the winners. Drawing will take place at closing time on August 29.

Candy Guessing Game: Be the closest person to guess the correct number of candies in the container, and you will win it! There will be a different container for each of the 4 weeks in August. One entry per person per day.

Movie Matinees: At 2:00 pm on Thursday, August 7, we will be showing a newly released Warner Bros. animated film. This story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. This film is rated PG for mild action and rude humor and is 101 minutes. Then, at 2:00 pm on Thursday, August 21, we will be showing a newly released Disney comedy/family film. The gang goes on a global tour selling out grand theaters in some of Europe's most exciting destinations. But mayhem follows them overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper. This film is rated PG for some mild action and is 107 minutes. FREE POPCORN AND LICORICE! Drinks with a cover or lid and non-messy snacks are permitted!

*Due to licensing agreement, we cannot display the titles of the movies to be shown. Please call or stop in the library for more information!

Game Day: Children ages 8 and up (approximately) are invited to play games and have some snacks with the librarians from 2:00-3:30 pm on Thursday, August 14. We will be playing the Wii and also several different board games. Please register by calling or stopping in the library!

Paws to R.E.A.D. Program:  The Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) Program for children is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. It is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats. Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills.

Our programs have been a huge success, so we will continue offering them! However, we are taking a break over the summer. The next one will be on Tuesday, September 9 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual children on a one-on-one basis for about fifteen minutes each. Children may choose library books to read or bring a book from home to read to the dog. PLEASE CALL OR STOP IN TO REGISTER!

Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month at the same time. This program is free and open to the public!

Preschool Story Time: We will resume Preschool Story Time on September16 at 10:00 a.m.! We will meet every other Tuesday morning at 10:00 am in the library basement. Watch for more specific dates and themes to follow!
