Saturday June 3rd at 11:00 am – Storytime! The featured story this week is If You Ever Want to Bring a Circus to the Library Don’t! If you see a poster that says “You Can Do Anything at the Library!” it is NOT giving you permission to put on a circus! But Magnolia doesn’t see any problem with setting up her own big top. She’s got a lot of gusto and one mean human cannonball routine. So what if her greatest show on Earth won’t fit between the bookshelves? Activities and coloring to follow as always!
Wonder Woman “Event” – Wonder Woman Day Promotion: Celebrate the new Wonder Woman movie with a Buy 2, Get the 3rd Free offer on all DC™ graphic novels and receive a free DC Superhero Girls or DC Universe Rebirth Wonder Woman Day special edition comic, while supplies last.
This is finally the weekend for our much anticipated Annual Summer Reading Kick-off with PAWS to READ at 1:00 pm on Saturday!
Saturday, June 03rd is our Annual Summer Reading Kick-off! with PAWS to Read at the store at 1:00 pm. Bring your children to Barnes & Noble where they can read to trained therapy dogs who are accompanied by their owners (sponsored by the Peoria Humane Society). The dogs are nonjudgemental listeners! and the kids receive a certificate of accomplishment and a paw stamp on the back of their hand. One of the most popular events of the year!
Plus you can pick up a Summer Reading Journal while you are in the store.
Journals are now available for children entering First Grade through students entering Sixth Grade. The journal requires participants to read eight books, write the required info in the journal, have a parent sign to verify and bring the journal to our children’s department to receive a free book from the list printed in the Journal.
Summer reading is extremely important for our K-5 students so they do not slip backward in their ability to read while not in school. Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading Program is set up for exactly that purpose.
