Library Summer Reading Club will end with party on July 25

The Summer Reading Club at the Mary Willis Library will begin to come to a close over the next couple of weeks as kids ages eight and older will have one last chance to experience the virtual reality gaming world on Monday, July 17, at 2 p.m.

“Come and swim on the ocean floor, climb Mount Everest, paint like an artist, or enjoy an afternoon at the carnival,” director Beth Miller encouraged. “Kids will also get the chance to suit up as Spider-Man and see what it’s like to be the world’s favorite superhero,” she added.

At 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 18, juggler Todd Key will perform at the library. Also, the library will host a craft workshop on July 20, open to kids ages four and older. Parents should call or visit the library to register their children beginning July 13.

The library will show two movies next week: Sing on Friday, July 14, at 2 p.m. and Monster Trucks on Wednesday, July 19, also at 2 p.m. Story Time for children two and older is held every Wednesday this summer at 11 a.m.

Thursday, July 20, will be the last day to record any books in the reading folders.

On Tuesday, July 25, from 10 a.m.-noon, the library will host an awards party for children who participated in the reading club. There will be arts and crafts and multiple games including a baseball throw, bean bag toss, a duck pond, and many more. Refreshments will be served for the children while supplies last.

Sam’s Path Petting Zoo will be bringing several different animals including a mini horse and a camel. Children who have read 10 or more books will receive a coupon from the library that will allow them to receive a free book or comic book, a coupon to McDonald’s, and a free ticket to an Augusta Green Jackets baseball game. The top readers for the summer will also be announced.
