“Every Hero Has a Story” is the 2015 theme for summer youth events and reading programs at T. B. Scott Free Library. During kick-off week, June 5-12, children and teens may pick up reading cards, check out books and sign up for prize drawings. Thanks to the generosity of area groups and businesses, all programs are available free of charge to area youth and families.
Summer is a perfect time to read for fun. Youth, age 3 through grade 12, are invited to keep track of that reading beginning June 5. Reading, being read to, and listening to audiobooks all count for participation in the library’s reading programs. Completed reading cards may be returned beginning June 12.
Kick-off Week events include:
June 9 and June 11, 9:45 a.m. – Free showings of a popular animated, action packed, hero movie in the library community room. Seating is limited, so stop in soon at the library to pick up free tickets and find out the movie title.
June 12, 10 a.m. – Rodeo Queens Read. In conjunction with Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo, T. B. Scott Free Library will once again host rodeo queens and candidates as they promote summer reading as well as the weekend rodeo. All ages are invited to gather in the library youth services department to meet them and hear them read.
