Please use the form on page 19 to register for the Summer Reading Club; then make plans to read every day and to Be Creative @ the Library this summer! Children’s book illustrator, Colin Bootman, at Oak Grove Elementary Durham County Library wants to get its customers, young and old, to express themselves during the 2009 Summer Reading Club with the theme, “Be Creative @ Your Library.” Summer Reading season kicks off with a carnival-style family reading festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 in the parking lot of the Main Library. For the rest of the summer, readers can earn treats and be entered in prize drawings by recording the time they spend reading or being read to. Readers will also have opportunities to participate in several special library programs designed to get the creative juices flowing throughout the summer. “We absolutely want to encourage everyone to read,” said Karlene Fyffe, the library’s Youth Services Manager. “Reading is pleasurable on its own. But we want to emphasize that reading is also often the first step toward solving problems, forming new ideas and expressing yourself.”
