HOISINGTON — The Hoisington Public Library will begin the 2013 Summer Reading Program on Wednesday, June 5. The Program’s theme this summer is “Dig Into Reading”. In addition to the hundreds of kids’ books on the shelves in the Library, Summer Reading participants will be able to choose from 67 new books that were recently donated by The Libri Foundation of Eugene, Oregon.
The Libri Foundation was established in 1990 with the expressed purpose of providing new, quality children’s books to small, rural public libraries in the United States. The Libri Foundation supports the concept that children who learn to enjoy reading at an early age continue to read throughout their lives.
Tedi Lacey, summerreading coordinator and Roosevelt/Lincoln School librarian, along with Pat Brown, library director, chose from among 700 highly recommended, award-winning titles recognized by authorities in the library and education fields.
The library staff looks forward to sharing these great new books with this year’s Summer Reading group.
