Summer is here which means you definitely need to take your kids to the local library to see what they have going on for summer activities and programs. Most libraries usually have something going on for kids. For example, my local library has a summer reading program taking place that awards kids weekly prizes for reading. For my 7 year old, prizes are based on time reading, since she can read on her own. For my 3 year old, prizes are awarded based on the number of books read by the parents. Regardless, both of my kids are excited to earn prizes this summer.
In addition to prizes, each week there is an afternoon education show at the park. My kids have done this the past 2 years and love it! It gives us something to do at least one afternoon each week through June and July.
So take a trip to you local library and see what they have to offer this summer. You may be surprised at the joy your kids get when you visit the library for these programs.
