With Memorial Day having just passed us by, I wanted to send out a quick reminder to everyone that the Summer Reading Contest, Summer Storytime and a monthly summer family film series are just around the corner. That means making sure all your little ones have library cards and visit us a few times to participate.
The Summer Reading Contest will run June 6th through September 2nd. One grand prize winner will be announced Friday, September 16th, and will receive a movie night with popcorn and snacks for themselves and up to 10 of their closest friends. No reading logs will be accepted after September 2nd.
Summer Storytime will run weekly starting Thursday, June 9th. This year, Storytime also includes some bilingual books, so if you are interested in exposing your child to the Arabic language, now is the time to start. We will be finding ways to continue these storytimes on a monthly basis throughout the year.
Also, this summer we are bringing back monthly film screening events to the center. Once a month on a Friday, patrons will be able to visit the center to watch family-friendly Islamic films. Once the titles are finalized we will post the list, so stay tuned for more thrilling announcements.
