– Tails & Tails is Coming!
Tails and Tales at Your Library This Summer!
Dogs, and sea turtles, and bees, oh my! No, this is not a remake of The Wizard of Oz; it is what’s in store for you this summer through the Alamance County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program! This summer’s theme is Tails and Tales, and from June 14th through August 14th, we will be exploring the wild world of animals through fun programs, both virtually and in-person.
We have a great lineup of special guests who will be presenting exciting programs over Zoom. On Thursday, June 17th, Wild Tales NC will be sharing some of their animal ambassadors and talking about conservation efforts to protect their natural habits. Things will be a-buzz June 24 at 4 P.M. with a fun bee-keeping program with Sankofa Farms! Looking to adopt a new pet or learn how to best care for your furry friends? On Wednesday, July 14th at 4:00 P.M., Burlington Animal Services will teach you how to be the best pet owner you can be! And things will get wild on Thursday, July 29th at 3:30 P.M. with a program presented by the North Carolina Zoo!
We will also be offering some fun outdoor programs for elementary students! You can learn yoga with Ms. Amy at Mebane, make fun crafts with friends at Graham, have a teddy bear picnic at North Park, and plant a tree of your own at May Memorial and Graham! Registration will be required for all these programs, and space will be limited, so make sure to keep an eye out for more information!
You can also get rewarded for the minutes you read this summer! You can register for our reading incentive program by visiting alamancelibraries.readsquared.com. Various prizes will be awarded for reaching certain milestones, and there will be raffle basket drawings at the end of summer!
This is only a fraction of the programs and activities that will be happening this summer at your libraries. For the latest information, please visit our website www.alamancelibraries.org or follow us on social media! We are sure to have a whale of a time, and hope you will join us in all of the fun!
