HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The Havre-Hill County Library has unveiled the details for the 2021 version of their annual summer reading program.
Children’s Librarian Ashley Verity says this year’s program, titled ‘Tails and Tales,’ will take place from June 9th to July 30th.
“It’s more or less the same as it’s ever been. Except I’m not having the treasure box. So instead of being able to get little prizes throughout, at the end of the program, everyone will get goody bags for completing their goal as well as a certificate of completion.”
All in-person events will take place in Pepin Park, beginning with the kickoff event on June 9th from 11 AM-3 PM.
“Readers will be able to get signed up and they’ll be able to participate in some activities. We’re going to build birdfeeders, have a habitat sorting game, and a little bit of a naturalist activity where you grab a paper and pencil and draw something that you find in the park. Be it a plant, a bug, whatever they decide. We will be encouraging social distancing and providing hand sanitizer.
From June 16th to June 28th, Wednesday Story Time will be held in Pepin Park
“Which will include stories, songs and occasionally either an extra activity or a take home activity.”
The summer reading program concludes on July 30th with a Wrap Party at Pepin Park from 11 AM-3 PM.
Although the events are geared towards children, adults may also participate, with the top adult reader receiving a shark raft.
Participants can read any books they choose, but it is encouraged that you check out materials from the library. Participants will turn in their minutes at the library or by using google forms that will be provided.
Verity says the public should expect plenty of animal related books on display this summer in the Library to promote the program.
