Churdan library starts summer reading program with military heroes

The Churdan public library will begin its summer reading program, with the statewide theme of “Every Hero Has a Story,” with a program featuring military heroes.

The summer reading program will be held Wednesdays, starting June 3. A morning program aimed at preschool audiences will begin at 9:30 am. An afternoon program for children through fifth grade will begin at 1:30 pm. Children may attend either program or both programs each week, but materials will be appropriate for the intended age group.

The first week, Jun 3, local veterans will do a short program at 9:30 am. Matthew Hodges will introduce his therapy dog from the Puppy Jake Foundation at the afternoon program. Area veterans are invited at 1:45 to be introduced and recognized for their service.

The library is also holding its Reading Buddy Program this summer to keep youngsters reading while school is not in session.  The Reading Buddy Program pairs a child up with an adult or older child and they read together throughout the summer.

This year all Reading Buddies will read at the same time, immediately following the Wednesday programs, beginning at 2:45 p.m. Reading Buddies will begin reading Wednesday, June 3.

For a complete list of programs, contact the library at 515-389-3423. “Be a super reader at the Churdan library this summer,” a spokesperson said.
