Our Super Summer Show from this week is at 10:30 a.m. today. This week is Kids Dig It! Fossils! Learn about Florida geology and ancient animals and dig for Florida fossils. This program is presented by the Florida Industrial & Phosphate Research Institute. The Bartow Public Library’s Super Summer Shows are designed for school-aged children 6 years and older. As always, we want to thank the Friends of the Library for their generous support in funding our summer programs.
Summer story times are a great way to get out of the Florida heat. Three to 5-year-olds meet on Tuesdays in June at 10 a.m. and feature stories, finger plays, music and films. Six to 8-year-olds meet on Tuesdays in June at 3 p.m. and feature stories, music, games, crafts and films.
Get ready for another Super Summer Show on Wednesday. We will be showing the family film: “The Ant Bully.” The movie is based on the book by John Nickle. When Lucas aims his water pistol at some hapless ants, they retaliate by shrinking him down to their size. The movie is rate PG and it starts at 10:30 a.m. and will run to about noon. A drawing will be held for a free ant farm.
The library will be closed Thursday, July 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. We will be open the day before and after. The bookdrop will be available for returning items.
We have been working with Polk Reads to acquire tutors to help Bartow adults improve their reading skills. If you or someone you know could use this help and would like more information, contact Roxann here at the library. Also, if you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor, we welcome your interest and can definitely use you.
