We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls email@example.com
The Heyworth Public Library has been converted into the “House of Blues” with cool tunes and hot reads for this year’s Read to the Rhythm 2015! National research from Dominican University finds that students who participate in public library summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year than those who did not participate. You can access all our programs on our website at heyworthlibrary.com, choose the “What’s Happening” link, then “Programs”, and select “Summer Reading Programs”. We have listed all our classes and programs. We also use Google calendaring, so save time and sync our calendar to your Gmail account. Or visit the library and pick up a program guide. Either way get these dates on your calendar today, and prepare to Read to the Rhythm all summer long!
If you can’t attend programs, children age 3 through 103 can still read for prizes. We have also “triple dog dared” students to read more than their parents this year! Reading for prizes runs June 6 – July 18. Only Heyworth Public Library materials count for reading for prizes. So make plans to stop in on June 6th or after.
June 6 – July 18
Calling all youth volunteers to help with the summer reading programming! Do you like to work with younger children, or would you like more solitary jobs working with books (book wranglers)? We could use your help! Under the “How Do I…” section of our website (heyworthlibrary.com), we list all volunteer opportunities available. You can read a brief description, and if interested: download, fill out, and turn in. It’s that easy.
