Summer is heating up.......

Now that the school year has come to a close, we can concentrate on our summer activities for children and young adults. We are really excited about the Summer Reading Program. This years theme is “Make a Splash @ Your Library” and we are trying to plan our events so we have a water based theme.

First of all, to participate in the Summer Reading Program, you must sign up. The sign up week will begin on Monday June 7th and run until Saturday June 12th. In order to participate you must have a library card in good standing – that’s it! Pretty easy. If your child does not have a library card, this is a great time to get one. All you need is an ID showing that you live in Lee County. Anyone under 18 must have a adult to be responsible for them.

Now to the planned programs! We are so thrilled to be hosting a live theater presentation by “Porkchop Productions.” Founded in 1991, Porkchop Productions is a professional theatre company specializing in audience participation performances. Their interactive approach to their performances make for a one-of-a-kind theatre adventure! They will be presenting “The Frog Prince” on Thursday June 17th at 10:00 AM at the Bishopville Opera House. The performers have taken a well known tale and added a few modern twists as well as lots of audience participation. We hope that this performance will help instill a love of live theater in our young people. There really is no substitute to live theater.
