Paris Public Library launches its Read for the Win! summer reading program on June 8. During June and July, the library will host free activities for ages 3-13 that encourage and support a love of reading and learning.
Summer reading should be fun - without any pressure or expectations - so this year there's no counting books, pages, or minutes. No keeping track of what is read. Just reading for pleasure and enjoying some library activities. Registration is not required.
Activities include visits from Douglas-Hart Nature Center, games, a Froggy storytime, and more. Read for the Win! concludes with a Family Fun Night on July 26. The full program schedule is also available at the library.
A series of short do-it-yourself activities will also be featured at the library during the summer. These will include puzzles, games, coloring pages, or simple crafts that may be done any time during regular library hours.
Why should kids have all the fun? Join us in the library's meeting room for two relaxing evenings of coloring this summer: June 9 and July 14, both at 6:00pm.
Just a bunch of grown-ups in the library, coloring and enjoying each other's company. We have scheduled 90 minutes, but you may come late or leave early as your schedule permits.
Materials will be furnished, but you are welcome to bring your own.
The Paris Book Club meets in the library's Gibson Room at 5pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month. The group has chosen a wide variety of books to read and discuss in the coming months. Everyone is welcome. All you have to do is read the book and come to the discussion.
