Have your Teens help with Maps and road signs. Ask the Elders in the family to read or tell stories of the past. You will be amazed what the kids remember when they are older when they are included .
Have a great holiday Season with the kids. Enjoy their activities, and include them in yours.

Kids starting Pre-K in the fall Through 6th grade. Kids birth to 4, must have an adult stay during the program.
We meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am until noon. Lunch will be provided this year.
First day of the program will be June 14th and it will run through August 4th.
Summer is always a time we look forward to, young or old. A time to play instead of school, a time for vacations, or just being lazy around the house.
It is also a time to be watchful. Know what the kids are doing, not just vaguely hear I am going out to play. Whose house are they at, are they downtown at the library, at the park, or just walking around. Be aware of their activities, who they are with and how long they are gone.
It is also a time to reinforce what they have learned during the year. Make sure they read at least 15 minutes a day, 30 minutes is even better. Let them help when checking out at the store, make them count the money, or even better, give them a limit they can’t exceed so they have to pay attention to a budget (and that way they don’t over spend). summers are easy time to forget what they have learned, give them a headstart in the fall.
Best of all HAVE FUN with the kids. Enjoy their activities, and include them in yours.
Summer Hours for the Public Library are Noon to 6:00pm Mon-Thur 11am-5pm Fridays. TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS are reading program days and we open from 10am til 12 pm for Kids related activities. No computers are on during this time. If you want to have a good time come read with the kids, you both will enjoy the time well spent.

Author: Drew Daywalt – Illustrator: Oliver Jeffers
I’m not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters! Having soothed the hurt feelings of one group who threatened to quit, Duncan now faces a whole new group of crayons asking to be rescued. From Maroon Crayon, who was lost beneath the sofa cushions and then broken in two after Dad sat on him; to poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan’s stinky socks after they both ended up in the dryer together; to Pea Green, who knows darn well that no kid likes peas and who ran away—each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
Daywalt & Jeffers have created a sequel that imaginatively explores the adventures and grievances of Duncan’s many crayons in a wholly relatable and wickedly humorous way. As I read I laughed, sighed, and was thrilled to see how Duncan responded to the crayon’s stories with compassion and creativity. I think it’s a perfect back to school read for kids of all ages.
