This summer, Alamance County Public Libraries want you to Find Your Voice with our Summer Reading Program!
Alamance County Public Libraries’ Summer Reading Program begins June 12 and runs through August 12th. Our summer offerings consist of two parts—library programs and a reading incentive program.
The programming staff of ACPL have all been working hard planning fun programs for all ages to attend. The fun kicks off on Saturday, June 10th at 12:30 P.M. at the Graham Recreation Center with our ¡Encuentra Tu Voz! / Find Your Voice! Summer Reading Program Kickoff Fiesta! This kickoff is a celebration of Latinx culture, and will include cultural dance, storytimes, food sampling, crafts, games, and fun!
In addition to our recurring programs like stoytime and our book clubs, participants will have the opportunity to attend a rockstar training camp at the Mebane Library, experience Alamance in Wonderland at the Graham Library, go on a special quest at the North Park, and express themselves through art at May Memorial! We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with other organizations to offer programs such as a Juneteenth storytelling celebration with storyteller Donna Washington, exploring dairy with Alamance County 4-H, beekeeping with Sanfoka Farms, aerial performance with Down to Earth Aerials, exploring the voices and stories of Turtle Island with Jason Crazy Bear Keck, puppetry with Jeghetto’s Entertainment, and a chance to learn about animal conversation and meet some animal friends with Wild Tales NC, plus more! For our full calendar with dates and times, please visit www.alamancelibraries.org. All of our summer programs are free, but many require advance registration.
You can also get rewarded for reading this summer! We are challenging each member of our community to read 1,000 minutes this summer. Any sort of reading counts—audiobooks, eBooks, comics, newspapers, or being read to! Rewards will be given out for every 90 minutes that are read, and consist of free books, small prizes, and raffle tickets for our amazing end of summer raffle basket drawings! You can sign up for our reading incentive program by visiting alamancelibraries.readsquared.com.
We hope that you will join in the fun at your library and find your voice this summer!
