New Toys and Storytime!

The new toys have arrived at the library!  We recently added building blocks, cars, farm animals, a magnetic letter and number board, a bead maze, a gear puzzle, and two floor puzzles to our children’s area.  We will be removing some of the older toys that are wearing out.  Come play with them at our evening story time on Thursday August 28th at 6:30 PM!

Summer Reading for All Ages!

Reading is an important skill that requires practice.  The more you do it, the better you become.  Children shouldn’t stop reading at the end of the school year.  If they keep it up, they can retain and grow their skills!  Summer reading isn’t just for kids.  Adults improve reading skills through reading as well.

Abbotsford Public Library’s summer program aims to help reading continue over the summer.  We would like to invite everyone to join us for our 2014 summer program: Fizz! Boom! Read!

Kids can sign up to join in the fun and get their activity folder starting June 6th.  If kids are too young to read on their own, parents can do activities and read with their kids.

Our Mondays @ 2 program will run from June 9th to June 30th.  Kids of all ages can come in for activities.  On June 23 at 2 PM, instead of an activity, we will be hosting magician Jim Lenz!  We will end with a Lego party and prizes on June 30th.  Kids can bring their folders in weekly to show their progress and get a prize.

All readers are welcome to come in and Read to Rover!  Starting June 11th, every Wednesday from 3:00 – 4:00, we will have a friendly dog in the library.  Feel free to come in and sign up to read aloud to Rover for 15 minutes.  The owner will be present to help with hard words if needed.

Teen readers can sign up June 6th as well.  Read a book and fill out a book review to get your favorite books on display at the library.  Recommend your favorites to other readers and get your name in a drawing for prizes.  Anyone that fills out 2 book reviews in paper or online can come to our party for games, pizza, and prizes in August.  The online form is at http://goo.gl/uQANHn .

Skills improve with practice no matter your age.  Adults can sign up for our Summer Reading Program starting on June 6th as well.  Pick up some book review slips to get started.  Fill one out for every book you read over the summer and get your name in a drawing for prizes!  Review the book and recommend reads to the next person that picks it up.  We will display reviewed books in the library.

We will be continuing our Free Family Movie Night through the summer, so watch the community calendar in the local paper for dates.  The next movie is on June 13 at 7PM.  It is about a lonely garbage collecting robot that meets a new friend.  Kids can bring snacks if they like.  You can also call the library at 715-223-3920.
