The Summer Reading Program at the Gilman-Danforth District Library is scheduled to begin July 8th. The library will use the Illinois Library Association’s theme – “Paws to Read!” The program will feature stories, songs, games, crafts, prizes, and activities related to the theme of animals with paws. Visits from trained therapy dogs are planned, along with a demonstration of dog obedience.
The sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, July 8, 15, 22, and 29. The children from age three through second grade will meet from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Children from third to eighth grade will meet from 2:15 to 3:15 pm. There will also be a family event in the evening on July 29. Participants should wear play clothes and sturdy shoes to the programs. Games will be outdoors when weather permits.
The students in Iroquois West schools have received blank registration fliers at school. They may turn these in to their teacher before school is out or take them to the Gilman-Danforth Library by June 25. Children may also register online here.
