F r o m t h e D i r e c t o r : T a m my B a g g e t t

Summer is one of the busiest times of the year at Durham County Library. You will find a host of activities for children, teens and adults at any location you visit. If high gas prices have you considering a “staycation” then you should consider Durham County Library as your destination place. From puppet shows and gaming tournaments to author visits and book discussion you will find something to help your “staycation” be a memorable one. I hope you will join us for our summer reading kickoff events being held throughout the library system on June 17 and 18. Such events are made possible by Durham Library Foundation, Friends of the Durham Library and Durham County. Come out to your favorite library location and celebrate! Summertime is also a great time to remind everyone that Durham County Library is going green. In an effort to be kind to our environment and to reduce postage costs, I encourage you, if you haven’t done so already, to provide your librarian your email address and take advantage of our notification system of reminders for soon-to-be-due items, overdue items and held items ready for pick up. To reduce the stress of your busy summer even more, you may want to try Library Elf. This service has features that work in conjunction with the library’s notification system. It’s a great way to manage library accounts for the entire family. Visit www.libraryelf.com to sign up for this helpful service. Don’t forget to browse the shelves for a great read. We have book after book of page turners that will have you reading all summer. Reading is a great family activity and it keeps school age children active while school is out of session. I’m currently reading In the Light of the Moon and Other Bedtime Stories by Sam McBratney with my niece and nephew. They always look forward with excitement as they wonder which story will be shared next. Happy Reading!

Book Your Summer Reading Ticket Today! Children, teens and adults are invited to take a trip around the world during this year’s summer reading club adventures. The umbrella theme is ‘One World, Many Stories’ and your librarians have planned an exciting summer of world class reading fun. Everyone will get an opportunity to ‘visit and explore’ any continent, country, city, town or village to learn about world cultures, dress, food, music and more. Research shows that students who read during the summer months increase or maintain their grades, so we want to encourage every family to carve out time to read together this summer.

To help more students complete the program and avoid the summer slide, the library will host “Are We There Yet,” a pit stop rally designed to refuel, refresh and reenergize. This rally will be held at the Main Library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 16. Attendees will bask in a world of fun with games, face painting, music, youth fashion show, crafts, moon bounce, mascots, refreshments and community agencies. And, the festivities would not be complete without a line-up of classic cars, so members of the Bull City Car Club will be present to give us a glimpse into their world of razzle dazzle… Please use the form on page 27 to register for the Summer Reading Club; then make plans to travel and explore the world through books this summer @ your library!

Recently, author Ramona Moreno gave elementary school students a delicious taste of foods from around the world during her Dia presentation, Freaky Foods from Around the World. Moreno, a California resident was in Durham to help the library celebrate El Da De Los Ninos/Day of the Children and help prepare students for summer reading. Moreno read from her books, gave the students an opportunity to handle Mexican jumping beans and baked crickets, and encouraged them to read during the summer. “You can travel to many countries and discover different cultures and foods just by reading books,” Moreno said. “I have visited some countries but I’ve seen the world through books.” Summer reading club participants will be encouraged to read at their own pace and log their reading time. Participants will be eligible for a variety of weekly, monthly and grand prizes. All our libraries will be offering exciting themed programs and activities that will engage and motivate families to experience a world of reading fun! Programs will feature puppets, magic, drama, music, ventriloquism, writing workshops and science camps. Read and Feed, another summer reading club offering at the Main Library, provides a limited number of children the opportunity to have complimentary lunch with special guests. Summer reading kicks off on Saturday, June 18 from 10a.m. to 1 p.m.at all library locations, except Bragtown and McDougald Terrace which will have their kick-off celebrations on Friday, June 17 from 3-5:30 p.m. The finale schedule will mirror the kick-off celebrations and will take place on Friday and Saturday, August 12 and 13. All celebrations will have a carnival feel and will feature activities, games and music connected to the world theme.

RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) Needs Your Support Federal funding for RIF has been eliminated from the budget for this fiscal year. This means that thousands of children in Durham and all across North Carolina will not receive free high quality books and other resources through RIF, the nation’s oldest and largest children’s and family literacy organization. This year RIF will celebrate 45 years of helping children discover the joy of reading! Recently, two of your librarians traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the RIF Leaders for Literacy Conference and had the remarkable opportunity to talk with staff in the NC congressional offices about how the elimination of RIF funding will impact North Carolina. Congressional staff was pleased to learn that last year North Carolina distributed 198,870 books to 52,867 children. Staff on Capitol Hill was also pleased to learn that Durham County Library distributes approximately 11,000 free RIF books to more than 5,000 children and teens during the annual family summer reading club. Although congressional staff was pleased to hear from your librarians they would be even more thrilled to hear from you so please send us stories about your children’s experiences choosing their free RIF books. We’ll compile them and include them in our next presentation. Send your stories to kfyffe@ durhamcountync.gov or take them to the children’s librarian at your favorite library. Other ways you can help: • Visit www.rif.org and click on the Get Involved tab • Explore the RIF site with your child; click on the Literacy Resources tab

• Also check out the KIDS tab while you are visiting the site • Participate in this summer’s Macy’s Book-a-Brighter Future campaign; watch for coupons and more info • Donate new books to Durham County Library for its RIF program Thanks for supporting RIF!
