Summer Reading Program 2020: Imagine Your Story

Dear parents, grandparents, guardians and kids,

June has almost passed. We had a month filled with fairy tales, magical creatures, Greek mythology, story times, crafts and board games. We started the Summer Reading Challenge, which some of you already finished. What a passion for reading!

But the fun is not over yet. In July we will let our IMAGINATION roam free.

1.       SUMMER READING CHALLENGE
The Summer Reading Challenge ends July 31st. You will have time to request your prizes (raffle tickets and the free book) till August 9th.The raffle drawing will be held on Monday August 10th and winners will be notified by Tuesday August 11th.
Prizes can be picked up at either the Elizabethtown Branch or the Radcliff branch.

2.       BOOK BINGO
In July you will have extra opportunities to earn raffle tickets. Come get a BINGO card in the library or download it here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1H86Hg-d_Etm0CaSK4R3UAN_EmMquZAbC?usp=sharing. For every BINGO you will earn an extra raffle ticket. If a book fits the description of multiple squares, you’ll have to choose one.

3.       BOOK GRAB BAGS
Stumped on books to check out for your kids? Let us know what type of books you'd like and we'll put together a bundle for you for curbside pick-up. Curbside limit of 10 books applies. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf-jIzExz0tUXUpu22EKmONFxoLuAnNbdM9JzbGaJjyRrluaw/viewform

4.       I SPY WINDOW
In the Elizabethtown Branch we will have an I SPY window. It is the window in the Kids Non-Fiction department. Can you find everything? You get extra points in our Summer Reading Challenge when you do this activity.

5.       SECRET CODES IN HARDIN COUNTY
To promote our Summer Reading Challenge we will hang secret codes all over Hardin County. We will post hints about the locations on Facebook and on https://hcpl.bookpoints.org/photo

6.       ONLINE ACTIVITIES
All our activities will still be online. The calendars for both -12 and 12+ are attached to this email. If you already registered for an activity, you do not need to register again. To register for new activities: https://forms.gle/SgyZWW1yUspVc1L97. We will keep using Discord for our communication, except for Family Story Time. Those will be prerecorded and posted on YouTube and Facebook on Saturdays. You will have time to do the Family Challenges until July 31st.

7.       IMAGINATION BAGS
This month we will not have predesigned craft assignments. We will tell stories and the kids can create whatever their imagination leads them. To encourage their imagination we prepared Imagination bags. We filled them with scrap paper, old magazines and newspapers, yarn, paper rolls, and other materials. You can pick them up at both branches. In Radcliff only curbside pick-up, in Elizabethtown, but curbside and in person. The imagination bags cannot be reserved. They are first come first serve.



If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
