It's Summer Reading Time!
School is officially out and summer is here! That means we are getting ready for the Summer Reading Program at the Homer Community Library. This year's theme is "A Midsummer Knight's Read" and we will be having a lot of fun with knights, dragons, castles and princesses. We have a local resident building some mini catapults for us and we will learn about castle design and defense along with many other medieval facts. Don't worry - it won't all be facts - there will be plenty of fantasy! We will read about fighting dragons (and maybe even practice on one of our own) and make some edible magic wands. Even if you can't participate in the activities you can still complete a reading log. Summer is the perfect time to read for fun. This summer's program will run on Tuesdays at 1pm from June 7th - July 12th. Any student in the Heritage School district entering K - 5th grade is eligible to participate. You can register at the Homer Community Library starting now! Call us at 217-896-2121 for more information.
