Summer reading is alive and well at the Lied Imperial Public Library.
Library Director Beth Falla said children, and adults too if they like, began tracking their reading on June 1, which will continue throughout the summer. There is a display board at the library for keeping track of those efforts.
More organized activities will start later this month, Falla said.
From June 27 to Aug. 8, children age three through first grade (this fall) will meet at the library from 9 to 10 a.m. each Friday.
Those entering grades 2-6 this fall will meet each Thursday at the library from June 26 through Aug. 7.
Following a “Readologists” theme, library staff is inviting youths to “come experiment.”
Falla said they are still working on programs, but they plan to have crazy science projects and experiments, offer some afternoon movies and encourage kids to keep reading.
Any adults are also welcome to participate, Falla added.
