June 21st - Summer Solstice and Longest Day of the Year!

Hey y'all! What are you planning to do with all that sunlight on Sunday? I know it's Father's Day, but besides spending time with your good ole' dad, why not pull out a good book to read? Or even better, pull out a book that you got at your local library? If you don't have one on Sunday, you can come in on Monday at El Dorado, Bret Harte, Mark Twain, or North Neighborhood Library Branches. The library will be closed this Tuesday, but we will be open again on Wednesday with the fresh continuation of our Summer Reading Club!!! Many of you have already received wonderful prizes of free books, and there's more to come. Here is a snipit of some of the books you can win for yourselves or your small child...YAY!

BE CREATIVE - Summer Reading Club 2009

Hey kids! Studies show that reading throughout the summer increases your reading skills for the next school year. Don't let your reading ability go down this summer - instead, join the summer reading club! Our club this year is open for all children through grade 6. Be creative - come in each week to Main Library and you can contribute to the decorations for the bulletin board. For every 5 days of reading, you can win a free book - yours to keep! Altogether, you can win up to 5 free books. What a way to brighten your day! Learn, grow and keep your reading skills up! Doesn't sound so bad to me! There are also programs happening throughout the summer at all our library locations. You could be bedazzled by magicians, pet animals, and more! Check our website for more information. So much is in store for you at your local library in Long Beach. Come join the fun!

Summer Reading Club starts on June 13th when the library opens. Thank you.
