I'm here! After living at the Champaign County Humane Society for a couple of months, I have arrived for a summer visit at The Urbana Free Library. Why the library? Well, because the Summer Reading Program this year is called Paws to Read, which means that it's all about animals! Read more about I'm Here!
We've had such a great time this summer celebrating reading - "Have Book, Will Travel." We've made our own rope, visited outer space, and listened with rapt attention to young performers during the Bow-Dacious String Band concert. Summer reading continues through the end of August, with the readers' raffle drawing on Friday, August 30. (Remember - Thursday, August 29th is the last day to enter your books to be eligible for the raffle!) Check out our photo gallery from the past month. What have you been doing? We'd love to hear from you. -Elaine B. Read more about Summer Reading is Cool
Last week, young patrons greeted some very unusual visitors to the library - miniature horses! Star, Rascal, Faith and Linzee arrived in Deb Murphy's trailer. They jumped out of the trailer and readied themselves for their special mission - to listen to children read. Afterwards, children had the opportunity to write a letter or color a picture for the horses. We look forward to their next visit! -Elaine B. Read more about Hoofing it for Reading
