2011 Summer Reading Program
We are right in the middle of sign-up week for the entire 2011 Summer Reading Program. If you would like to participate, come to the library and sign up. We will issue you a wrist band that will entitle you to come to our Gala Kick-Off at the Grammar School Park on Saturday June 11th. The gala will be held at 11:00AM and will feature hot dogs, a cake walk, music by Tiz Laney and lots of fun things. We hope to see all our summer readers in the park on Saturday. Remember, you must have a wrist band to participate.
The Library will be closed on June 11th.
The next program will be held on next Thursday June 16th at 1:00 PM at the Opera House. We will be hosting Bright Star Theater. This event is open to the entire community. African Folktales is a 45-minute production that brings to life the vastness of the African landscape and a variety of clever animals. Join Akili as she shares these exciting tales that were traditionally passed down by word of mouth. With imaginative costumes and lots of audience participation, this production also includes valuable character-education themes. Celebrate world cultures, literature and the art of interactive African storytelling with the newest show in the Bright Star repertoire. The “Library Ladies” hope the entire community will come and join us for this great show. Admission, of course, is free.
Thanks again to our partners the Lee County Arts Council for their support. The 2011 Lee County Summer Reading program is partially funded by a grant from the SC State Library and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Special thanks to our partners at the Lee County Chamber of Commerce for promoting our program on the community marquee.
