The Oak Grove Public Library is boasting a calendar full of fun events this summer. From summer reading programs for the kids to a daytime book club for adults, readers of all ages will find a reason to visit the library.
The theme of this year's children's program is "Every Hero Has a Story." The program is open to all ages, from young kids to teenagers, and the super hero theme is designed to entice even the most reluctant young readers. Kids will receive a prize for every 30 minutes of reading they log.
"I hope that our summer reading program provides good incentives for children to continue reading during the summer," said Christina Broom, library assistant.
Activities will be held on Thursdays at 10 a.m. The program will begin Thursday, June 11, and run through July 23. To register, click
Visits from the zoo and magicians are just a few exciting things on the schedule.
There's plenty to do for adults, too. Folks can play "Book Bingo," a game that allows them to get to know the library and read their way through various genres. A stamp is awarded for each book read and prizes are given to winners.
A daytime book club meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. The members read the same book and then meet monthly to discuss it.
"I feel like if you read throughout your life, you're going to be at an advantage," said Judy Shelton, library assistant. "You're going to be well traveled because you can travel through books."
