Registration still open for Hancock library summer reading
Registration is still open for the Hancock County Library System’s 2016 Summer Reading Program. Programs begin Monday, June 6, and run through Thursday, June 30.
Children and teens can register at their favorite branch. This year’s theme is On Your Mark, Get Set, READ! and
focuses on sports, fitness, health and nutrition. The program is open to
children, ages 6-11. Children who attend library Summer Reading Programs retain their literacy skills over the summer months.
This year’s programs will feature yoga demonstrations, the science of sports, sports-themed movies at The Beacon Theatre, life-sized board games and more!
Programs are at 10:30 a.m. daily: Mondays at the Waveland Public Library; Tuesdays at the Pearlington Public Library; Wednesdays at the Bay St. Louis-Hancock County Library; and Thursdays at the Kiln Public Library.
Programs and activities for the Teen Program will be held various days of the week at various library branches.
Registrants for either program receive a book bag, a reading record, and much more.
For the toddlers, newborn to 5 years of age, the library hosts the Rubber Ducky Program, which runs at each branch
on the same day and time as the children’s programs. Hosted in partnership with Excel by 5, Rubber Ducky presents age appropriate activities for toddlers, including coloring, arts and crafts, outdoor play, and storytime.
