Registration next week for library's summer program

By John Hegemier Library director

Summer is a great season to be a kid. School is out and the days stretch on and on.
Unfortunately, summer can also be a time when skills and knowledge gained during the academic year are lost. Programs that encourage reading and critical thinking skills throughout the summer have proven to be very effective in minimizing this summer learning loss.
For these beneficial reasons, and because we simply think that reading and learning are good fun, the Bandera Public Library will once again host Summer Reading Program for local youngsters.
This year's program is themed "Every Hero has a Story." Fun, educational activities are planned from June through the middle of July. Free registration and orientation will be at the Bandera Public Library on Thursday, April 30 from 3:30 - 5:30 pm and again on Thursday, May 7, from 3:30 - 5:30.
There will be two different programs based on age. The 3-5 year olds will meet on Wednesday mornings, and 6-12 year olds will be meeting on Thursday mornings. More information about the summer reading program will be available later.
"Our goal is to keep children and preteens engaged with the library throughout the summer," concluded Bandera Public Library Director John Hegemier.
