Pearl Library Youth Services Supervisor, Kristen Hillman, couldn't be more pleased with last night's response to the Black Light Painting teen program, the first program of the 2018 Summer Library Program - Libraries Rock! "The teens had such a wonderful time and said it was the most fun library program they had done in a long time,"she said. "They just had a great time!"
How could they not! Black lights, glow sticks, and neon glow paint! OH MY! The teens did finger painting and made head bands and bracelets with glow-in-the-dark pipe cleaners!
As big of a hit that the Black Light Painting program was, there's even more great stuff on tap Kristen said! "The teens are so excited about all of our programs coming up in these six weeks of summer programming especially our very last program."
That would be the Library Mini Golf program on Monday, July 9 at 5:30 p.m. "We are gong to transform the teens/young adult and the children's sections into an 18-hole mini golf course," she said.
Other teen programs, which are all on Monday night at 5:30 p.m., include African Instrument Making on June 11,"I Pick You" Guitar Pick Bracelet making on June 18, Rock 'N' Roll Trivia Madness on June 25, and Pre-4th of July Cookout and Games on July 2.
The excitement doesn't stop with the teen programming!
The children's programs have kids jumping up and down in anticipation! All the programs are on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The Pearl Puppets are June 5, the Snakeman is June 12, Animal Tales on June 19, Dorian the Magician is June 26 and Inky the Clown is July 10. "These programs are such an exciting time for kids and families!, " Kristen said. "They are so excited about Animal Tales coming and about seeing the wolf dog pup!"
HUH?! A real live wolf dog pup?! Yep, a real one. And, they are bringing Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches too! And, more! They'll be teaching the kids about the different sounds each animal makes! That's because this year's Summer Library Program theme is Libraries Rock!
The 2018 Summer Library Program is not complete without reading! The kids are tracking their reading with color-coded stickers. For every 20 minutes a day they read, they apply a sticker. When they fill it up they can bring the log in and get a prize! Can't beat that with a stick!
