Summer Reading Program

I have tallied up the reading by the children for the 2009 summer reading program. The Preschool through kindergarten read 1,060 hours; first through third grade read 675 hours and fourth through sixth grade read 270.5 hours for a total of 2,005.5 hours read during the five weeks of the summer reading program. Good Job!

Imagineering at Your Local Library

The summer reading program will conclude with a program by Robert & Lynn Halbrook called "Imagineering at Your Library". The program will be held on Wednesday, July 29th at 1 p.m. at the Ortonville Public Library. The program is open to the public. Imagine the thrill your kids will experience as Robert illustrates "Harold and the Purple Crayon" with an actual drawing coming to life and talking WITH them! Dream and fantasize about your own gardening efforts as one of the kids helps Robert with a gardening project that literally bursts into bloom! Create...Robert demonstrates a really whacky invention. I won't tell you what it is because it's a secret!
