On Saturday, May 31st, at 1:00 pm, the library will offer a special event, the C.R. Ryan Master Magician.  This Hoosier Magician, with his 9 year old son, travels around the state to the delight of others.   Geared toward children though grades 6 and their families, he will entertain all during this Summer Reading Kick-off event.   Tickets will be available in the Children’s Department, beginning May 24th.  If not already registered, families will have the opportunity at the event.


The 2014 theme for children is “Fizz, Boom, READ” for children.  The theme for teens and adults is “Spark a Reaction, READ.”  Our Summer Reading Program is always a special event with programs and other fun activities, plus the chance to earn incentives for reading.  It’s for all ages.  Each registrant will receive a book bag and bookmark.


“The purpose of the Summer Reading Program is to encourage people to read and to take advantage of the services of the public library throughout the summer. Moreover, studies consistently show that summer reading helps students maintain (and even improve) their reading skills.  Normally, when school resumes in the fall, school performance improves for reading program participants.”  The program starts May 24th and ends July 26th.  The bookmobile Summer Reading program starts June 4th and end July 24th.  Mark your calendar and make sure you register.

For more information, visit the library’s website, or call the library at (765) 827-0883 and ask for Melissa, Kim or Anne Marie.  You can also email annemarie@fcplibrary.lib.in.us
