Carnegie Public Library hosts COSI from Columbus


By Anne Quinn - Head of children’s services at Carnegie Library



The children’s department at Carnegie Public Library presents another summer of fun with the Summer Reading Program 2016!

We invite all children 12 and younger to sign up for our reading challenge, and to participate in more than 65 programs we are presenting. Summer Reading Fun is not just for kids, everyone can participate, teens and adults, too. The Jeffersonville branch has also planned an exciting summer filled with wonderful programs.

We encourage kids to keep reading all summer long to prevent “summer slide” of their reading skills. The California Library Association reports that reading five age-appropriate books during the summer prevents the loss of a tween’s reading skills. Reading six books helps tweens improve as readers!

Visit the library between now and July 15 to sign up for the reading challenge. Library programming will continue throughout August. We have an outstanding collection of books to read for fun or to read for information. The children’s staff will be delighted to help guide your child to find just the right book they won’t be able to put down!

COSI from Columbus will be presenting a high energy program, The Incredible Human Machine, on Friday, June 10 at 11 a.m. in the cafeteria at Cherry Hill Primary School. The seating is on the floor so bring a folded chair if needed! Stop by the library for our newsletter or checkout our website www.cplwcho.org for the calendar of events. Join us for a summer of fun at the library!
