I'm super excited because I just earned my very first Connect Your Summer Badge! I told you that LB and I signed up as team, right? Well. We just got our very first badge... the Multicultural Badge. And it came with a nifty little star on it because we shared what we did with all of you! I read a book called Zoo-Ology by Joelle Jolivet. It's a big huge book (you can see it in my last blog post) with really neat pictures in it. And I learned a little bit about all the different animal cultures that are different than me. LB decided he would study People Culture, so he visited the Canton Historical Society. They have lots of neat stuff there. And LB got to sign his name in the guestbook (he has very nice handwriting) and put a pin on the map where he lives. He brought back lots of pictures to show me, and it sure looks like he had fun!
Boy we both had super lots of fun. We can't wait to earn our next badge! I need some ideas though... What have you done to earn yours? Can't wait to hear all about it!
Hi, my name is Meghan. I'm a 17 year old senior at the PCEP. I love reading more than anything else and libraries are one of my favorite places to be. I appreciate the connect your summer program becuase it's brigning together the community and showing kids,teens, and adults that's there's more to the surrounding areas then what any of us know. However I am reaaly saddened that this has taken place of the summer reading programs. I understand that my perspective is not that of an average teen only because know how much work goes in to summer reading (I was on CPL TAB and am still on PDL TAB). I kid you not when I say I look forward to summer reading all year round. Granted I'm just one voice and I'm sure a lot of my peers dont share my enthusisasm but I think some do! I miss book clubs, teen advisery board, and now the summer book logs you turn in for prizes. I get that this is a new era of computers and less hand written logs but now I see no reason to really go in to the libraires other than to grab a book. The economy must be a factor as well but I just wanted to let whoever reads this know there are deffinetly still people under the age of 18 and over the age of 10 that enjoy doing summer activites. Whew, I'm sorry to go on and on but I've kept that in for awhile haha.
Ps.I will 100% keep supporting the library in whatever it does.
I think this program is great for adults, but for children I wish you would go back to the old program. I have children in a reading program at school and they are required to turn in a reading log from the summer reading program through our local library. To that end, we will be registering the kids at Plymouth this year instead of Canton.
Is there a summer reading program this year? We enjoyed it last year.
It was a hot day, so most of the animals at the Zoo were sleeping, but the highlights were the penguins, seals, giraffes and rhinos. Had a great time!
Baby Boy read Penguins, Penguins, Everywhere! about (you guessed it!) penguins.
Mama is working on The Tower, the Zoo and the Tortoise about one of the live-in tour guides for the Tower of London. So far lots of fun bits about history and a little bit about animals.
