Libraries Rock!
2018 Summer Reading Program at the Oxford Public Library

The ice cream social kickoff was a success.  Many people came despite the gathering clouds for ice cream floats or sundaes.  The door prizes were given away as follows:

Royals’ tickets, Strataca Tickets, and Dairy Queen gift card. Congratulations to all of the winners!

The store is open if young readers want to use Book Bucks!  Be sure to bring your folder with the challenges page.

N Sync Readers (middle school), if you did not get a coin at registration, let a librarian know.  The social got a little confusing at the end, so we feel we missed some of you!  You will want those coins!

The first library programs will be on Tuesday, June 5th.  We will explore the Science of Sound!  The times are Rolling Stones from 9-10 and Imagine Dragons from 10:15-11:15.

We have a change to our programming.  I will send an email too.  On Tuesday, June 26th, we will have one program only at the Oxford Lions Club.  This will be the program called “It’s a String Thing!”  Our guest musicians will be Randy and Susan Parks, who are both accomplished musicians.  This will be a great program you won’t want to miss.  Plan to come at 10 a.m. to the Lions Club on that day!

Adults summer reading participants (or Beatles as I will continue to call you), you still have time to name those musical artists.  This contest is on the walls of the library.  Team up with a partner (young and old might be helpful) and come identify the 30 musical artists.  Someone will win–whichever team gets the most right–of if multiple teams have the same number–I will draw a winner.  It has been fun!  This contest goes until June 8th.

Here is our Library Rap!  Can you add another verse?  Come and be prepared to share on June 12th when our theme will be “Libraries Rock so Let’s Roll!”

“Now it’s summer
There’s lots of sun
We’re at the library
to have some fun.

We’re tall; we’re short
We’re big; we’re small
When everybody’s here
We’ve got it all!

We’ll rap the library
and rock the town;
our noise is joy
when we get down.

Walk the walk
Talk the talk
Join Summer Reading
Cause ‘Libraries Rock’!”
