Summer Reading 2010 begins June 14 at the Grayson County Public Library (130 East Market Street, Leitchfield) and lasts until July 2.
Youth Services Librarian Laura Lindsey oversees all of the summer-reading programs for kids 18 months through 12th grade.
Each completed activity earns the participant a prize card. Prizes will be awarded during each session that a child attends.
Most of the prizes that are handed out are donated from area businesses and organizations.
A week-long day camp is planned for July 19-23 from 9-2 p.m. at James D. Beville City Park (located off of William Thomason Byway, Leitchfield).
Anyone interested in signing up for Summer Reading 2010 can contact Lindsey by phone at 270-259-5455, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Attending in-library programs is a requirement for attending the day camp," Lindsey explained. "Day camp is limited to the first 100 people who sign up. This is a different sign-up than the summer reading registrations."
Classes will be held on the following days; Monday is for preschool, Tuesday will be kindergarten and first grade, Wednesday is second and third grade, Thursday will be fourth and fifth grade and toddlers and teens are required to attend on Fridays.
"Preschool through third grade will have the opportunity to come in on their day anytime," Lindsey mentioned, "during hours of operation. Parents are asked to stay with their preschool though first grader."
Visit the library for a detailed listing of times and dates.
The summer reading kickoff is scheduled for June 12, on the grounds around the library, from 11-2 p.m.
Stacy Mudd, mother of two children (Chandler and Lindsey), has taken advantage of what the establishment has to offer for a number of years.
"Chandler has been involved with library programs for four years," Mudd said, "and Lindsey has been doing it for two years. It gives the kids something to do during the summer. The lessons are fun and educational. I was surprised to find out how many fun things there are to do at the library. Laura does a really good job. They started some new age groups this year.
There are a wide range of ages the library accommodates to."
