The summer reading program at the Weston County Library has been going on for decades, encouraging children to get into the world of reading, according to Brenda Ayres, the library’s director. The Collaborative Summer Library Program, which was organized by libraries in Minnesota in 1987, helps libraries across the country take part in a theme for their summer reading programs.
This year’s theme, “Libraries Rock,” will allow children to delve into the world of music. Amanda Sanford, the children’s librarian, said that throughout the summer, there will be fun events for children to attend. During these events, children will get to experience all things musical. Books will be read to them about music, special guests will share on music and instruments, and science experiments will also be included to teach the children about sound and how it works.
Learning more about different genres of music and instruments will enable children to deepen their knowledge and explore something new, Sanford said, and children might even find something that they find an interest in.
