Summer Fun at the Library

6/25/12
One of the ways we beat the summer heat is by taking trips to the library.

This year, I signed up two kids for summer reading.  I have signed my son up since he was little.  We love the program; there are some great rewards including restaurant coupons and baseball tickets.  And for my little bitty, she is working towards earning a cute rubber duck too.

Our latest trip was a play date with my friend's little boy to the baby program.  (He is only four months younger than little miss though you can't really tell when looking at him!)  

The library programs are free and lots of fun.  Great for a family on a budget!






This was our first visit to the baby program that is held once a month.  It was a pretty big group and ranged in age from newborn to 23 months.  When we arrived, we saw fun mats to sit on and beach balls!


They did finger plays....watched puppets...




Sang songs...



And played musical instruments





We can't wait to go back and play with new friends!  Do you sign your kids up for the library's summer reading program?  Have they been to any fun events?

  8. Our library does a weekly storytime, and I am going to start taking our son this week. He isn't around children his age much so hopefully this will be good for him!

  13. I love our Summer Reading Program! Wednesdays in June, they have "entertainment" come out after they read a book and color a page. They had Captain Hook and Tinkerbell, then an entomologist show them bugs, and last week they had a magician do tricks. This week it's the Grand Finale, and we'll have a big to-do at the main park in town. :)
    Looks like your kids enjoy it as much as mine do!

  14. Sweet fun! We have five sons and many treasured memories of summer reading library programs (one son once won tickets to a robotic dinosaur exhibit...way cool). Thanks for sharing.

  15. Hi Shelly,

    I'm so glad that your library has such a fun Summer reading program. Our library has a really fun program for the kids, teens and adults. On Thursday I am so glad I don't have to work because they are having the reptile man come. The kids will love it though.

    I love your new blog design. Very cute!

  19. Yes! LOVE the local library. Even when they don't have structured events going on it's such a great place to bring the kids. (And I think often overlooked, which is why I love that you wrote about it :)
