Childrens's Story hour runs each Wednesday of the summer through August 26th. Story hour times are 10:30 a.m. for preschoolers and 3:30 p.m. for elementary age students. This month we will focus on Heroes From History and learn how we can be a hero in our community. If you would like to help the children to be a hero, please donate to our "Little Heroes fund" at the Cadott Community Library. As the children turn in their reading logs this summer, they are earning votes to donate the "Little Heroes fund" to one of three charities: The Cadott Food Pantry, The Chippewa County Humane Association and Irvine Park. At the end of the summer, the charity with the most votes will receive the "little Heroes fund". please help our children to see that giving is heroic by encouraging them to fill out their reading logs or by donating to the fund. Remember, "Every hero has a story", what's yours?
Make sure you stop in to the library before July ends to take a crack at the masked local hero competition. We have a bulletin board full of pictures of local heroes hiding their identities behind a mask. Can you guess the most names/professions correctly? Also, look for our certificate of appreciation station in the children's section. Kids can craft a certificate expressing their thanks to a local hero in their life. Adults, remember to turn in your book BINGOs as the summer ends. We just received a shipment of canvas book bags, courtesy of a grant from 4imprint.com 1 in 5 BINGO participants will receive a book bag as a prize for participating in the summer reading program and some may even be loaded with books, movies and more!
