Summer reading IS fun!
Each Wednesday, the younger summer readers meet in the basement activity room for FUN activities, crafts, stories, games and PRIZES. The groups also visit the library upstairs and check out a book.
The older group (age 11-15) meets for 30 minutes to check out a book, collect their prizes, and play our version of “Minute to Win It!”, “Jeopardy”, and other super fast and fun games. They’ll win gifts cards from their favorite Akron places!
All you’ll need is a library card…
Everyone must have a library card to check out books. To get a card, parents will need to visit the library and show proof of residence with a Colorado Drivers License (or Colorado I.D. card) showing their current Washington County address.
