County libraries have full schedule of summer programming


ARENAC COUNTY — Kids may be getting out of school, but the local district library is making sure they continue learning and reading through its free summer programming.

Lynne Bigelow, children’s and teen services coordinator at the Iosco-Arenac District Library, said while the library is not able to do reading logs this year, it will be bringing in various professional programs throughout June and July.

“We just want to get children into the library to look at those books and keep their reading level up all year long,” she said.

There will be drawings at the programs so that everybody goes home with something, she said. The programs are all free and open to the public, and no registration or library card is required.

Libraries across the state as well as in other states follow a theme chosen by the Collaborative Summer Library Program each year, and this year’s is “A Universe of Stories.” Bigelow said some of the district branches may be doing themed decorations, and all will be doing slightly different things.

Bigelow said adult programming will also continue throughout the summer, and an after-summer reading program will be held the last week of July and first week of August, with some more events for kids to attend.
