McPherson Municipal Library
Summer Reading Program
Each program day includes read aloud time to encourage literacy, a craft to encourage imagination and group games to teach cooperation and physical fitness. Children learn how to follow directions and interact with a group of peers. Every Friday prizes are awarded for the time each child spends reading and helping in their community as well as their behavior during the program. Each week we try to teach the children about community involvement, and good sportsmanship.
The 3-5 year old group meets from 1:00 - 2:00 Monday through Friday for 7 weeks in July and August (Except the holiday Monday). You can either pay a full summer cost of $25 per child or a drop in cost of $2 per session.
The 6-12 year old group meets from 2:30 – 4:30 Monday through Friday for 7 weeks in July and August
(Except the holiday Monday). You can either pay a full summer cost of $30 per child or a drop in fee of $2 per session.
The program is run by local teens employed by the Library, but as Manager I am at the library Tuesday’s through Fridays as support for the teen Programmers.
The program is over for 2015, Thank you to everyone who made this year such a success!
