Our first program was a hit! We had 16 children participate in the READING COLORS YOUR WORLD. Coordinators Mrs. Sarah and Ms. Katie put together a great Take-and-Make Activity. Families had the opportunity to make Kool Aid Playdough at home. They also handed out popsicles provided by local dentist Dr. Kirt Glenn.  How did your Kool Aid playdough turn out? We would love to see your photos. Find us on Facebook @BVORLibrary. Librarian Sherri is encouraging everyone to read a book about or with the color RED featured this week.


Our team handed out a coloring contest page this week. Didn’t get a chance to drop by? They will be available at the Library Front Desk. Entries are due by 5 PM on Thursday July 29. Two winners will be announced on Friday, July 30. This year’s prize is some awesome Library Summer Reading Program Swag. Our Coloring contest prize will be awarded Thursday, July 29


Parents are an integral part of our Summer Reading Program. Without the help of parents and volunteers our Library would not be a success. Thank you!


Next week we will be handing out a different Take-and-Make activity. Join in the fun at your local Library! The Friends of the Brownsville Community Library have bought each child an age-appropriate new book. Come down to the Library Park and join in the fun! Normal Library hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 10 – 5; Thursday 1 – 7; Saturday from 10 – 2.
