Sign up for the preschool summer reading program!

That's right: the Lee County Library will hold a special summer reading program just for preschoolers. It's called "Junebugs," and you can register for the program on Monday, June 23 in Depot Park at 11:00 a.m.*

And did we mention that Rags to Riches Theatre will be performing a play called "Bug Juice" that day for FREE??!! Yes, bring your family to watch the performance and then register for the summer reading program right then and there.

*Caveat: In case of inclement or ozone-alert-type weather with temperatures above 90 degrees, the events will take place at the old fellowship hall of First Presbyterian Church, 203 Hawkins Ave., next door to the library. Old fellowship hall is very small and admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. No strollers will be permitted.

"Junebugs" will meet 6 Tuesdays beginning June 24. REMEMBER: Registration is required for this program, as only a limited number of spots are available.

And you may be asking yourself, hmmm, wonder what they will be doing in "Junebugs" this summer?
Glad you asked, because our theme this summer is Catch the Reading Bug. That means six weeks of bugs, bugs, and more bugs. Make buggy crafts, listen to buggy stories, and eat buggy snacks. Each program lasts approximately 30-45 minutes and may include books, flannel board stories, movement, songs, games, crafts, and snacks.

If you can't come to the preschool program, stop by the children's area at the library and pick up a buggy bibliography. This is a brief list of books that will appeal to children ages birth to 12.
