Summer Reading Program

Kirksville & North Central Missouri

It’s all things science at the Adair County Public Library this summer! Beginning Tuesday, June 3rd through Thursday, July 3rd, children ages 2-12 can sign up to read, then track the time spent reading on library fliers. Children, who are too young to read, can count the time that parents, relatives, or caregivers read to them on the reading fliers.

The goal is to read at least 30 minutes a day totaling 3 hours a week to receive coins redeemable for prizes.

Other activities at the library include “Everything OLOGY” on Tuesdays where children, 2-12, can participate in hands-on activities and listen to area scientists at 10:30 a.m. The program will last 45 minutes while the craft stations will be open all day, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Children, ages 8-12, can “Enter the Exploratorium,” participating in enrichment classes on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. Guest Science teachers will share science in exciting ways through hands-on projects during an hour long program.

The entire family can enjoy watching the profession “edutainment” during  “Scientist in the Field” on Thursday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Weather permitting, all Thursday programs will be held on the west library lawn.

For more information contact the Adair County Library at 660-665-6038.
