Summertime is here!

Wow! It’s already summer. Kids are out of school, running around trying to find something to occupy their time. Well, there’s the Library! Come read with us. We are having our annual Summer Reading Program for Kids. All school-age children are invited to come every Wednesday from 1:00-2:00 in the month of June to have fun with Storytime and a craft. Our theme is “Deep in the Heart of Texas.”

This year we are trying something new, we are having a Summer Reading Program for Teens. Every teen from 5th grade to 12 th grade is invited to stop by the Library, sign up and check out a book or two. Read that book and return with it and your book lists to receive a prize.  Prizes are donated from generous businesses in the Georgetown, Killeen, Round Rock, Temple, Belton and Harker Heights area.  The prizes  include passes to movie theaters, restaurants, bowling alleys, skating rinks, mini-golf and different fun summer attractions.  Every time you read you get a prize. And actually you get two prizes, the pass to someplace fun and the knowledge of that book you read.

There is so much to do at the Library, we have a monthly craft time around a particular holiday for that month. We have computers to use for fun or learning. We have lots of books to read. We just recieved all of Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” Series, also just came in is Tamora Pierce’s Book’s 1-4 “Protector of the Small Quartet”, also “The Last Unicorn” by Peter Beagle, and “The Dangerous Days of Daniel X” by James Patterson. Plus lots more have arrived. Come check us out!
