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.
I've gotten lucky on more than one occasion. Thanks for having this available, it's always my first stop!
In many cases, I'd like to limit my search results to just books, rather than have Audio or other media forms mixed into the list. Just a thought.
