Hello, Summer 2022!

Greetings, second year of Let's Read, Liverpool!

The celebration of summer reading with the Liverpool Public Library is the subject of this week's community library column for the Eagle News Online/Star Review.

With the tagline Oceans of Possibilities, the program begins with kickoff events that run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Dinosaur Garden lawn, on Saturday, June 25, and Monday, June 27.

If you've yet to see the column about Let's Read, Liverpool! around town, you can read it here:

 It’s time for another big summer of celebrating with Let’s Read, Liverpool!

 The folks who plan for the Liverpool Public Library recognized that community members greatly appreciated the first year of pledging and reading to fit their own style and preferences.  They decided to deliver round two.
 
This summer the full title will be Let’s Read, Liverpool! Oceans of Possibilities. That second statement fits the tone perfectly and dovetails with the national theme adopted by many other libraries across the country.
 
The LPL will hold two kickoff parties, with plenty of activities as well as registration for the children’s, teen and adult summer reading clubs for those who wish to still log books. The events will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 and Monday, June 27, on the library’s Dinosaur Garden lawn.
 
Everybody attending will have a chance to sign this year’s pledge and pose with our popular big pledge card for photos that could be used on LPL.org or the library’s social media. Can’t make the kickoff but want a chance to be featured? Email your photo to CommunicationsDept@LPL.org. Also available will be the prize wheel ready for spin-and-win, big games on the lawn and crafts.
 
For those who love logging, attendees again will have the option to sign up for their age-appropriate reading club. Rewards can be reached and prizes won for completing missions and reaching milestones. Kickoff attendees could receive an LPL lanyard (while supplies last) and earn buttons to attach on it! Prizes will include book bundles, as well as gift certificates donated by community partners.
