SCPL is ready to kick off the 2013 Summer Reading Program for the summer! SRP 2013 is from June 3 until July 27. This summer will be filled with Seuss! Read 5-10 books (depending on your age); and collect prizes. Attend programs for chances in our weekly prize drawings! Prizes for Summer Reading have been donated by businesses all over the county.
This summer we have special guest readers at each of our children's storytimes, from around the county. Pick up your reading log at any Starke County Public Library and get started reading!
The Moving Starke County Forward coalition wants to improve the health of local residents one step at a time! The coalition is sponsoring a “Moving Starke County Across America” walking challenge to collectively encourage residents to walk, bike or run 3,000 miles between Memorial Day and Labor Day. There will be prizes and raffle drawings after the challenge wraps up in September.
You can sign up at any Starke County Public Library location. Pick up your form today, and start moving forward!
The Association for Library Service to Children has assembled some of the best websites for children, particularly to help them with their schoolwork and to feed their curiosity. Great Websites for Kids brings together really good websites, in an easy-to-use format. Visit greatsites.ala.org today!
