The Reading Railroad Made it to the 21st Century...Finally!!
The Reading Railroad has officially hopped aboard the social networking band wagon. It took us long enough but we made it. With the creation of our blog and Facebook fan page we are hoping to increase the participation amongst the children of our community at the summer activities we have planned. We will be updating our blog on a regular basis to include all of the fun activities we have going on weekly. Beginning Monday June 7th we will kick off our Summer Literacy Center nights. Every Monday from 1-6pm we will be organizing a literacy center that will incorporate valuable literacy skills with a fun theme. These Literacy Centers alternate locations with one week being at the Logansport Public Library and the next at Riverside Park. Also, we will be having "Brown Bags and Books" at the Story House Depot in Spencer Park every Tuesday and Thursday from 12-2pm. Feel free to bring your lunch and come out to the story house to enjoy a good book while you munch on your favorite summer treats. Lastly, every Wednesday night at the Story House Depot in Spencer Park from 6-8pm volunteers from the community will be present to read various books to the children. After listening to the stories from our community volunteers feel free to hop over to the craft area to join our library volunteers in creating a craft that has to do with our story for that evening. Make sure to check back on a regular basis for updates on our weekly activities and locations to come find us and join in the fun. Also, be sure to check us out on Facebook. Make sure to hop aboard the reading railroad this summer to not miss out on all the fun!!
