Summer reading program starting up at library

“The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1797-98:
Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.

Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.

And why, you may ask, do I quote Coleridge? Notice this theme:

1. Life Jackets are again available for check-out at the Pine River Public Library

2. Summer reading program for 5 – 12 year olds = Make a Splash at your library

3. Teen summer reading program = Make Waves at your Library.

4. Kick off of this program is “A Splash of Magic” performed by Robert Holbrook on Friday, June 11 at 1:00PM. This is also open to the public but we encourage children to sign up.

The children’s and teens’ reading programs begin June 14 and run through August 7th. Sign up begins June 7th. Information packets are available at our library at that time. Additionally, activities days will be held from 1 – 2:30 on certain days during the week and advance sign-up is required. All this information will be given out when the young people register.

And then there is the book sale. It will be scheduled for the end of June. We are looking for donations. We are only moderately selective. Everything except “Readers Digest Condensed Books”, old text books, and encyclopedias will be accepted with open arms and cheers of thanks. Well, maybe not this last, but we could certainly use your donations.
