Children were making chalk murals, eating popsicles, drawing with face paint on themselves and others, enjoying hula hoops and generally having a great time!
You can sign your child up through July 8, 2013, for the children’s summer program, and enjoy some of the upcoming activities. For every 5 hours of reading up to 15 hours kids get prizes like a free one time pass to the pool, a RiverRat ticket, tshirt and more! First Bank Richmond is donating money towards the Backpack Blessings program, for feeding kids during the school year, each time a child reads five hours. Children can decorate a lunch bag which will go to a child this Fall.
The summer program ends on July 13th and on July 15th a big celebration, for all the children who read 15 hours or more, will take place at the library.
So get your kids up to Morrisson Reeves and start some summer reading. (If you live in Centerville- they also have a great summer reading program and are teaming up with MRL for some fun events).
Thanks to all of the Morrisson Reeves partners for this and other great events for the kids on our community.
