Summer's Not (Quite) Over!

It's almost time to think about school supplies and homework, but not quite! We've got two more weeks of Children's programs and you've still got time to finish up your summer reading! Get those last few books read and logged now and come in to our last few programs.

What's still to come this summer?

Olympic Reads

Are you watching the Olympics this year? It's great fun seeing everyone compete, watching all the different sports and the athletes from countries all over the world, but that's just this year! The Olympics have been going on for a very long time, going all the way back to Ancient Greece! Learn more about the history of the Olympics with some of these books:

Games to Play at Home

While there's plenty to do at the library, sometimes you just want to play outdoors. Want to host your own backyard Olympics or carnival, or just get out of the house and have some fun? There's a ton you can do at home to have a good time and maybe even cool off in the summer heat:

The Mr. Lemoncello Challenge

Looking for a reading challenge this summer? Why not take a cue from Mr. Lemoncello from the books Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library and Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics by Chris Grabenstein? In Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics, the eccentric library-lover Mr. Luigi Lemoncello invites teams of kids from around the world to compete in a series of library games and puzzles. Throughout the story, Mr. Lemoncello refers to tons of books, which you can find a list of at the back of the book. We've taken that list and broken it down into three reading levels. Challenge yourself!

Welcome to Summer!

We hope you and your kids have been having fun already, even though school only just got out. We here at the library have jumped right into summer with our weekly Art-To-Go craft program and our summer reading programs all starting this week, along with a concert, a movie, and a storytime! Did you miss those? Don't worry, we've got tons more programs coming up. You can also still sign up for our summer reading program! Take a look at the bottom of this post for a special password to enter in once you've registered. Putting in each blog post's password will earn you an extra raffle entry!

On Your Mark, Get Set... READ!

Get a jump start on summer by seeing what we've got planned here at the library, learn about our summer reading programs, and find out more about what's happening elsewhere in Quincy!
