Families encouraged to take advantage of the library this summer

Published 7:03pm Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Although school is out for most area children, fun educational opportunities are still abundantly available as the Selma-Dallas County Library launches their summer program.

Beginning June 10, the library will offer a variety of programs that the entire family can enjoy — all free of charge.

From puppet shows to petting zoos, we’re confident area children will be endlessly entertained when they walk through the doors of the Selma-Dallas County Public Library.

Becky Nichols, library director and one of Selma’s biggest cheerleaders, encourages children of all ages to take advantage of the library’s summer programs. One of the best educational opportunities available at the library, Nichols said, is the summer reading club.

All children who come to the library can pick up a summer reading log where they can document how many books they read over the summer. The reading program is not a competition, Nichols said, but rather a way to keep children engaged in reading during the summer months.

We encourage all families to take advantage of what the library has to offer this summer. With so many programs and great educational opportunities, there’s no reason for any child to be bored this summer.
