On June 9th, members from the Doylestown Kiwanis volunteered their time to hang over 100 dangling stars and black streamers (symbolizing night) from the ceiling of the children’s section of the Doylestown Library.
These decorations represent this year’s Summer Reading Program theme, Dream Big – Read!, at all Bucks County Public Libraries.
“Decorating the library’s children’s section is one way we give back to community,” says Jim Caldwell, a member of the Doylestown Kiwanis. “Being our mission is ‘serving the children of the world,’ volunteering here is one of the many ways we accomplish our objective.”
From now through August 5th, your child can pick up a reading log from your local library. Kids are encouraged to record the number of minutes they read every day. At the end of each week, they can bring in their completed logs to receive a prize.
Logs are available for preschoolers, grade school students and teenagers.
“The theme gives us a focus for our programs, so we can relate our stories and activities to that theme,” says Katie Ringenbach, Youth Services Librarian of the Doylestown Library.
