The Taylorville Public Library kicks off their summer reading program on Tuesday, June 13 at 10:00 a.m, complete with Kona Ice, face painting, bubble stands and more. The library staff is excited to present events for all age groups this summer. They truly have something for everyone with activities targeting everywhere from preschoolers to adults.
“This year, we’ve been working towards getting events for all age groups, and we have achieved that,” said Jessica Green, Programming and Outreach Manager at the library. “We’re introducing a preschool outer space lab. It’ll be cute little preschool activities, and we’re excited that we could present something for kids that are a little bit younger. We also have events for adults during the summer reading program as well.”
Registration opens at 1:00 p.m. on June 6 and closes June 10. Registration can be completed online at taylorvillelibrary.org or by phone at 217-824-4736.
The library staff are especially excited about story time with State Representative Brad Halbrook on June 27.
“I’m excited to be with the people in our community,” Jessica said. “We have a lot of wonderful people here in Taylorville, and to see them having fun just makes my day. That’s what I’m excited about is just being with everybody, because our little community has made a big impact on my life. It brings a lot of happiness to me.”
A fun space theme ties all of the events together, from moon expeditions to galaxy suncatchers.
“We have different themes each year, and we chose this theme because we love space,” Jessica shared. “It’s cool. Space is gender-neutral, all kids of all ages love space, and we thought that it would be a great topic to cover, whether it’s through education or crafts. It just felt like a good theme.”
