This month we will be teaming up with Barnes & Nobles on Saturday June 11th. Anyone who buys from the store or online and mentions the Goddard Public Library will be donating a portion of their purchase to the library so we can buy new books for our collection. They have many activities lined up for that day including an author book signing, storytime, and an illustrator chat time. The store is located in the Bradley Fair mall at 1920 N. Rock Road. They will be open from 9 AM – 10 PM.
On Your Mark, Get Set … READ!!
It’s summer reading time again and this year our theme is sports and activities. Come join us as we read and get moving with a summer of fun. It’s so easy to sign up and win prizes. Our programs are completely free of charge. We have some awesome sponsors sending us incentives for us to offer up to our participants this year as prizes for completing our reading program as well as the opportunity to go above and beyond for extra prizes. Ages K-12th grade, if they choose to go above and beyond the regular reading program, will have an opportunity to put their names in a drawing for one of three bikes!! Each week when you come into the library there will be a new craft sitting out to do as well as a new shoe-box science. You don’t know what a shoe-box science is? It’s just a simple science project that will take you between 10-30 minutes to do that all the components will fit into a shoe-box. We will be having Wii weekends. Over the weekend you can come up to the library and we will have a game of the weekend for you to play. You’ll play the game and submit your score and at the end of the weekend we will have a chart of the top scorers. Good luck!
When attending a program at the library please pay attention to any age limitations on the program. People not within the age limits of the program will be asked to leave. Some of our programs require signing up due to limited materials. If you choose not to sign up for these programs but show up for them you might not be able to participate if the program is full of people who signed up already. If no one signs up for these programs they will be canceled altogether or rescheduled. We will be doing three Henna Tattoo days during the course of the summer. Two of them will be available for anyone 1st grade and above. What’s Henna? Henna is a plant that is dried, crushed, and mixed with lemon juice and oils to make a paste. Then it is applied to the skin in a chosen design and left to dry. Once it is dry it is flaked off and the design is stained into the skin. The amount of time it lasts depends on many factors but usually fades within a week or two. There will be limitations where they can be put and anyone under the age of 18 will be required to get a signed permission slip before participating. Another new program we’re trying this year is Color Me Days. We will have coloring pages out and crayons for anyone to come in and sit down to color. If you have any questions about any of our programs feel free to ask us.
This year we are requiring anyone who signs up for the reading program to have a library card through us. It’s a simple process and is completely free. For adults we will need a current ID such as a driver’s license. If the address on the ID is not current then we have to have a bill or bank statement that has been mailed to your current address. Sorry we can’t take checks, e-bills, or anything not in the name of the person applying for the library card for proof of residency. If you’re between the ages of 5 and 18 you will need to have your parent or guardian bring you into the library to get a card. They will have to bring the above mentioned information. We cannot issue cards for anyone not present or to minors without a guardian present with them. We’re sorry if this is an inconvenience.
