Summer Reading & Activities

 

On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!

   the 2016 Summer Reading Theme at the Perry County Public Library.

Area children ages 0 – 18 are encouraged to participate in “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!” the Perry County Public Library’s summer library program, from June 6 to July 23.  Children are invited to come to the library to join in the exploration of all things sports, games, and fitness, as well as take part in special events offered throughout the summer.

Special events this summer will include:

Fun Fridays

June 10 & July 8 will be movie days!  A movie will be shown in the afternoon from 1:30 – 3:30 on both days.

June 24 & July 15 from 1:30 – 3:30 will be board game days.  The library has many board games, or you can bring your own game and enjoy some snacks while playing the games with your friends.

The summer finale will take place on Saturday, July 23 at 1:00.  Steve Haffner with Haffner School Programs will be at the library in Tell City for the “Get Up” magic show.  That will encourage children to get off the couch and stay active, both physically and mentally.

Along with those special events, the library will offer weekly activities.  Click here for the schedule.

Registration is required to attend the weekly activities. Please choose one day and one time for the appropriate age of your child and that will be the day and time that you attend each week.  Registration will begin on May 2. Please call 812-547-2661 to register.

The bees are a buzzin' at the

Perry County Public Library this spring! 

 

A local author will read his

published children's book at the library in Tell City!

 

Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at 1:30 p.m., in the storytime room,

Mr. Eddie Price,

Kentucky author/retired history teacher, who wrote

"Widder's Landing,"

will be reading his new children's book entitled:

  

Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee!

This is the first book in a planned series of eight Little Miss Grubby Toes "misadventure" books.

It has won numerous awards including:

Gold Medal in the 2015 Mom's Choice Awards.

Gold in the 2015 Readers' Favorite Awards held in conjunction with the Miami Book Fair. 

Included in the Renaissance Learning AR "Accelerated Reader" program, 2016 (quiz will be available in 4-6 weeks).

The illustrator and publisher of Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee!  is nationally-known Mark Wayne Adams (also Kentucky-born).

Mr. Price will first read the book, have a few discussion questions, and then, hopefully, the children will "wake up" Little Miss Grubby Toes (the puppet) by singing her favorite song. 

This program is best suited for children in preschool through grade three, but everyone is welcome to attend.

 Light refreshments will also be served.

There will be copies of "Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee!" for sale at $14.95 each.  There will also be copies of "Widder's Landing" for sale at $26.95 each.
