Summertime is the time for recreational reading for all of us and is especially important in developing lifelong reading habits in children. Although there are special summertime reading programs for adults and teens in the library it is the children's department that gets the most summertime traffic. For all the details of the program, here is the link to the library page. http://fullertonlibrary.org/2013/06/05/summer-reading/
Reading is Delicious is this year's program theme. And this makes for some incredible decoration. If you have not visited the children's room lately you really ought to. There are light up bunches of grapes hanging on the wall by the clock and a teddy bears' picnic display.
The major goal of the program is to sustain children's reading levels over the summer by encouraging the development of the daily habit of reading at least a half an hour every day. A secondary goal for library summer reading programs is to increase the circulation of library books. We the Friends of the Library are in total support of both these goals. We want you and your family to participate in the program on all levels and to check out lots and lots of great and wonderful library books.
But please don't forget to continue to support our efforts in selling used books. Remember that the selling of used books by Friends of the Library whether in the store, at the sales or online is a major fund raiser for our library. You can help by:
- Shopping for books, magazines, and other media in our store.
- Donating your unwanted books, music and movies (VHS or DVD format) to the library.
- Supporting our special One Day Fiction Sale on Sat. July 20
- Buying books online from our Amazon link http://www.amazon.com/shops/Ostrich
