Get Caught Reading in May

Featured Article

With the school year winding down and the weather warming up, we’ve got lots of reasons to love the month of May.  A great reason, though, to celebrate this month is that it’s Get Caught Reading Month!  This could be just the excuse you need to pick up a book and plop down somewhere comfy and start reading.

We certainly do love reading, but one of the things we’re most excited about around here is that we’re gearing up for our Summer Library Program.  We begin in June (so we have a month yet to go), but we had a kickoff last Saturday with Trucks, Trucks, and More Trucks & Community Helpers.  This year our theme is “Dig into Reading,” so we had all sorts of big machines and trucks out in the parking lot and some awesome community helpers in the second floor lobby.  We rounded out the event with crafts, a scavenger hunt, and of course, lots and lots of books.  Check out these great truck books and activities.

We are also pleased to offer Scholastic’s Bookflix to our customers to use either in the library or at home with a valid library card.  Getting caught reading just got a whole lot more fun for you and your kids! You can access Bookflix on your computer or tablet.  Bookflix is best suited for children ages 3-9, and offers fictional video storybooks that are paired with nonfiction eBooks.  You can have the story read to you or can choose to read along with it.  There are also pairs of books in Spanish, and included are games, activities, and other teacher and parent resources.

Use whatever excuse you need, but go get caught reading during the month of May!
