Summer story times are a great way to get out of the Florida heat.

Three to five year olds meet on Tuesdays in July at 10 a.m. and feature stories, finger plays, music and films. Six to eight year olds meet on Tuesdays in July at 3 p.m. and feature stories, music, games, crafts and films.

Our Super Summer Show this week will require you to walk outside the library.

We will be hosting WaterVentures, Florida’s Learning Lab. WaterVentures is a 53-foot semi-truck that’s been transformed into a science learning lab on wheels. Learn about Florida’s watersheds, stewardship, conservation and recycling (on a fourth grade level).

This is sponsored by the Crystal Springs Foundation. Groups of 50 will be admitted Wednesday on the hour at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. Call the library to preregister at 863-534-0131.

Thursday afternoon will be a program for our 9-12 year olds.Worm Charming, Worm Farming and Earthworm Races will be presented by the Polk County Extension Office. The program will be from 3-4 p.m. and pre-registration is not required.

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.
