And we're off...

Deep breaths, everyone.

My library's Summer Reading Club starts tomorrow. It's a day we've been planning for since shortly after the end of last summer. We've been to eight elementary schools in our district, seven preschools, and one middle school talking to students about the club and about our programs this summer. We've designed clubs and folders for kids of all ages. Our adult services department has been busy developing the high school and adult clubs. We've all been planning, scheduling, and ordering supplies for our programs.

I think we're ready.

We'd better be ready. Because ready or not, June 2nd is coming...!

Look for updates on our programs and reading clubs as the summer progresses. There are several things I'm particularly looking forward to, including a High School Musical 2 singalong, a redesign-a-book-cover art contest, and a giant Lego train set that will be filling our entire meeting room for a weekend in July.

Happy Summer Reading, everyone!

It sounds like you've got some really fun summer programs lined up! The sing-along sounds like a great idea. I hope you post an update about how the book cover contest goes; I've been wanting to try that for ages, but it keeps getting put off.

Our clubs don't officially start until next Monday, but sign-up began last week, and it's been a mob scene all afternoon! It's great... but phew...
