With school out for the year for Clinton students, a local entity is hoping local youth will participate in their annual summer program.
The Warner Public Library's Paula Lopatic explains they have started signing up kids for this year's Summer Reading program, which is themed Reading Rocks.
This year's reading club once again features a lot of excitement with programs, games and activities scheduled all throughout the summer. Lopatic says their goal is to make reading fun and get them excited about reading.
There's a number of bigger programs the staff at the Warner Library hosts. According to Lopatic, try to bring in different demonstrators and themes year to year to keep things fresh for the students.
While there's plenty of fun to be had at the Library this summer, Lopatic says children reading over the summer is very important to their development in the classroom. She explains a child not reading over the summer can set them back a great deal versus children who spend a little time each day in the summer months reading something.
To get registered for the summer reading club and to get a full list of the many activities throughout the summer, check out the Warner Library at 310 North Quincy Street. You can also visit vwarner.org for a calendar of other events and happenings.
