Studies show that students who don't read over the summer are less prepared for school success in the fall.
The Perham Area Public Library makes summer a piece of cake with the 2008 summer reading program "Look What's Cookin' at your Library". The library will offer special weekly programs, book clubs for children, and reading incentives intended to stir things up all summer long.
The program runs through the months of June and July; and registration can be done at any time.
The library has scheduled a special weekly activity for children and their families every Tuesday through July. These "Tuesday Talent" programs are free and open to anyone who wishes to attend with no pre-registration required unless specially noted.
"Let's Make Lunch" will be held on Tuesday, June 17 at 2 p.m. at the library. If your children love to cook, this activity is for them because all participants will work together to create and serve a simple, fun meal.
K-9 Officer Scott Koennicke and Zorro of the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department will be at the library on Tuesday, June 24 at 2 p.m.
Finally, the last Tuesday Talent program in June is actually on Wednesday. Storyteller Holly Ristau of Mahnomen will be at the library on Wednesday, June 25 at 1 p.m. to mesmerize and entertain the audience with her wonderful stories. This program is funded in part by a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council through a Minnesota State Legislative Appropriation.
Get cookin' this summer and join the fun at the library.
