Pre-Readers Summer Reading Program- North America
June 12, 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 PM
The McConnell AFB Library is celebrating our two themes for the 2018 Summer Reading Program: “Libraries Rock!” and “Reading Takes You Everywhere”. Throughout the summer, we will host a variety of programs for our patrons to enjoy. Programs will occur every Tuesday at 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Please see individual dates for locations. Programs are geared toward children ages 3-6, but siblings are welcome to attend. All programs are free, but registration in the Summer Reading Program is required.
This year the pre-readers will be reading around the world! Each week we will “visit” a new continent and do hands-on learning. Join us on June 12th as we explore North America. Bring your Teddy Bear and visit the Teddy Bear Clinic. The bears (and their people) will learn all about visiting a real hospital. The bears will go through triage, surgery, and aftercare! Bears will be provided for the first 50 participants without a bear.
Last year the McConnell Library was the number one library in the Air Force in the Summer Reading program, with 1.4 million minutes read. Will you help McConnell maintain the top spot this year? Earn prizes and help the Base Library work toward keeping their #1 spot in the Air Force by registering for the Summer Reading Program! Pick up your registration form from the Library, then log your minutes at https://mcconnellafblibrary.beanstack.org. The 2018 Summer Reading Program is open to pre-readers through adults starting on 31 May through 24 July. For more information, call the Library at (316) 759-4207.
