From press reports
 
Like the Hulk the Winston County Library is “Crushing it” with its Superhero themed summer program.

Thanks to many local business sponsors, the library is able to bring many fun and educational programs to children and teens during June.

Children ages 3-5 can enjoy story time with Mrs. Julie Chase every Monday morning in June from 10:00 -11:00. This is our “Little Heroes” program.

“Every Hero Has A Story” is the reading program for children entering the 1st grade through entering 5th grade. These programs will be every Tuesday in June from 2:00 – 3:00.

June 30th: Awards Day/Water Day, sponsored by Louisville Rotary Club
“Unmask” is the reading program for teens entering 6th grade through entering 12th grade. These programs will be every Monday in June from 2:00 – 3:00

June 22nd: Sgt. David L. Nyholm, U.S. Army. Teens will talk about U. S. Army and his experience as a medic in the army; travel, pay, and educational opportunities for teens. He’ll have lots of great giveaways including t-shirts and water bottles.

June 29th: Awards Day/Water Day, sponsored by Louisville Rotary Club. Children will enjoy being sprayed by the Louisville Fire Department, games, and the Sugar Shack Sno-Cone Mobile.

All children who plan to attend these programs must be registered at the library prior to attending a program. Parents or legal guardians must register each child. Reading rewards/prizes will be given to the first, second and third place readers in each grade. All reading rewards/prizes are sponsored by the Louisville Banker’s Association and the Louisville High School Class of 1959. The grand prize for children’s and teen’s reading programs will be a $50 gift certificate card donated by Wal-Mart, to be given away on Awards Day.

Only parents or legal guardians may register their children for the summer library program. Once children are registered, babysitters, grandparents or other caregivers can bring the child to the programs. Children up through age nine must have a parent or authorized caregiver over age 12 in the library, or on library premises, at all times during the programs.
