Nashville Public Library launches its Read Beyond the Beaten Path summer reading program with a registration party on June 7th at the park from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Come sign up your family and play the day away with fun games and bounce houses.
During the next six weeks, the library will host a range of free activities for children and families to encourage and support a love of reading. Participants can win prizes for reaching their reading goals.
Themed events include building birdhouses, making seed bombs, a “build-a-turtle” friend, going on a bear hunt, and an interactive animal show. These events will be held weekly at the library on June 14th, 21st, 28th, July 12th and 19th from 1:00pm-1:45pm.
“We’ve planned a wonderful program for kids to make the library a great place to read, learn, and discover what’s available for their enjoyment,” said librarian Kelsey Schaepperkoetter.
Teens and adults are invited to participate in the summer program as well. Track your summer reading to earn raffle tickets for grand prize items like Barnes & Noble gift cards and Kindles.
This program is free and open to all. A library card is not needed to participate. Registration will remain open until July 12th. To learn more about the summer reading adventure at the library, please call 618-327-3827.
