Summer Reading at the Library

Julie Kennett and Joanna Brown display the first batch of “Story Time To Go” Kits to be picked up at the Library.
Even though the Greenville Public Library building is still closed at this time, the Children's Department is hosting a Summer Reading Program called “Imagine Your Story.” The program will begin June 1st and end August 14th:

Julie Kennet explains ”Children can register online, and we will send them a reading log to complete throughout the summer and return to the Library. Completed reading logs will go in to a drawing for prizes at the end of the program.

“During the summer we plan to post an online story each Monday through Friday with such titles as Mo Willems, Totally Buggy, Wild about Reading, and Fractured Fairy Tales. Patrons who comment on the online videos will be entered to win weekly Summer Reading Prizes.

“In addition to the online story times, we will offer 2-3 fun, online videos from some of our Family Fun Day performers (to be announced). We will also offer “Story Time To Go” kits for families to enjoy books and a craft at home. Kits can be requested by calling the Library.

“Kits that we have prepared in our first batch include: Barns, Bears, Chickens, Clifford, Cowboys, Cowgirls, Cows, Crows, Dogs, Ducks, Eggs, Elephant and Piggie, Elephants, Fireflies, Fish, Freight Train, Frogs, Gorillas, Grover, Hats, Hedgehogs, Hippos, Hot Air Balloons, Ice Cream, Karma Wilson, Lady Bugs, Lions, Mice, Monsters, Music, Nighttime, Pete the Cat, Pigs, Polar Bears, Raccoons, Roosters, Sharks, Squirrels, Swimming, Trucks, Turtles, and Wolves.”

The Library continues with curbside pickup and other services by appointment. Call 937-548-3915 and let us know what you need. To better serve our patrons our hours starting June 1 are 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. five days a week.
