Summer Reading Program June 17th-August 10th
Summer Reading for Children
The Kingsville Public Library will kick off our annual Summer Reading Program for all ages beginning June 17th - August 10th. This year’s theme is “Universe of Stories,” and will include a variety of activities and events based around space and more.
Children ages 5-12 may pick up a reading log starting June 10th and will be able to spin for prizes beginning June 14th. Every hour of reading equals 1 spin on the prize wheel and every spin wins a prize! Children will also have the opportunity to enter to win bigger prizes. Prizes include Dairy Queen Treats, books, gift cards, tickets, and even BIKES! Library programs are essential to help children avoid the “summer slide” and not lose up to three months of their reading achievement from the previous school year.
The Summer Foods Program is back again this year. Lunch will be provided by Ashtabula County Community Action for children 18 years of age or younger. Lunch will be served in Kingsville Township Park from 11:45am- 12:15 pm daily, June 10th -August 6th . The rain location will be in the Simak Welcome Center.
Every Wednesday from 12:15-12:45p.m a free nutrition program through OSU Extension will be available to the participants of the Summer Foods Program directly following the lunch service. Children will learn about nutrition while having fun playing games.
Be sure to check out the library’s calendar of events by stopping in, by accessing it on the library’s website, or by following us on social media. Call us at (440) 224-0239.
