Hanging on to summer at the Dalton Community Library

It’s August already! Let’s hang on to this month as long as we can.

At the Dalton Community Library, the Summer Reading Program will come to an end, but before it does, the kids who joined the program are going to a RailRiders baseball game. A free game ticket was the prize for those who read five books during the summer. We have a large group of Dalton families attending the game and we’re so proud of the kids.

Another ending activity for those in our summer reading program will be a traveling workshop from the Everhart Museum. We are really looking forward to it. The program is called, “Simple Shapes Masterpiece” and is an art based workshop inspired by the Everhart Museum’s permanent fine art collection. Students will use simple shapes and patterns to create beautiful one-of-a-kind works of art. “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds will be read.

This summer, the kids who joined us weekly for our activities had a lot of good times. They made friendships, shared many laughs, and enjoyed the gatherings for art, yoga, apps and more. A big thank you to all the kids and their families for making another summer at the Dalton Community Library successful, and for sharing your kindness and smiles all year long.

Also this month, the Dalton Community Library will participate in the county wide Junior Battle of the Books. The battle will be held on Thursday, Aug. 6 at Marywood University. Children participating have read five books and will be quizzed on the each book’s contents. All participants have studied and worked very hard. We wish our team, and all the teams, good luck.

The Fall Storytime and Kid’s Crew programs will begin in September. For information about these or any other Dalton Community Library groups, call 570-563-2014 or email JFamiletti@albright.org.

We would like to wish all children returning to school a wonderful and exciting school year.
