What do kids from Camden Point do during the summer? Camden Point does not offer a lot of entertainment as larger communities and the city provide. However, kids are very resourceful and tend to stay busy.
One way for kids to stay busy is to play ball. They play T-ball, coach pitch, and kid pitch. There are A leagues, AA leagues, and AAA leagues; starting from preschool all the way through high school. Usually there are two games a week; with traveling to be done to the neighboring towns.
Summer means two things in the library world – the Summer Reading Program and vacations. If you’re headed out of town this July or August – and you’re worried that the book you’ve had on the holds list since January is going to come in while you’re out of town – and be gone before you get back… don’t panic! You can ‘suspend’ your hold while you’re out of town! This will hold your place in line.
The Summer Reading Program at the Camden Point Branch is underway. Although the Camden Point Branch hosts programs throughout the whole year, it is during the summer when we host programs almost every week. And yes, most of the programs are mostly attended by kids, parents, teachers and adults.
The Mid-Continent Public Library offers a variety of programs for the whole family. These programs are free or with a small cost for hands on materials. Moms, do you need to plan an outing for the children? Go to the library, pick up books, and take in a puppet show, juggler, or a clown. Teens are you bored? Check out the teen programs like Anime Movie Night. Those hot summer days don't have to be spent only at the pool.
It's hot out there, and while most people know how to keep yourself cool, you may not know how to keep your four legged best friend cool. I'm talking of your dog of course. The most important thing to remember during the summer is to make sure you're not over doing exercise. Dogs all need exercise everyday all year long, but during the summer especially, you really need to pay attention to make sure they're keeping cool as well. Breeds that are the most sensitive to heat related health issues are the breeds with the "squashed-up" faces, or brachycephalic faces.
Wow! It's hard to believe its already the end of July! Where has the summer gone? Yes, we still have August, but with school starting within a couple weeks, it hardly feels like part of summer anymore. One other sad part of summer ending, means the annual Summer Reading Program is ending too. You still have the first week of August to claim your books or other prizes. So don't delay, come to the Red Bridge Branch or whatever branch is closest to you to claim your rewards for all the reading you have been doing this summer. I hope you had fun partici
I don't think we can deny it any longer; summer is officially here! Considering Memorial Day, the first of June, the start of the library's Summer Reading Program, the last day of school, and all those orange barrels on the highway, the evidence is pretty conclusive.
