Imagine Your Story summer library program starts Monday

Lincoln County Public Library’s summer reading program kicks off Monday with “Imagine Your Story.” The program will last through the months of June and July.

No in-library programs will take place this summer, but the library will offer virtual story time and other videos on its Facebook page.

Each week families can call the library at 601-833-5038 to request a reading packet. A bag full of fun sheets, craft activities and goodies will then be available for each child requested at curbside pickup.

During the first week of June, each child will receive a welcome bag, including a bookmark, pencil, crayons, glue stick, reading log and other fun items to use throughout the summer.

Each participant needs to read or listen to at least five easy/juvenile non-fiction books or 50 minutes of a chapter book every week. A child may read any book on his or her reading level. Children who cannot read for themselves may have someone else read to them.

A limit of five material items can be checked out per library card. E-books can be checked out through RBdigital and Hoopla. Checkout limits for the local summer reading list are two books for two weeks per card. These books have paper wrappers on them that should not be removed.

Each week a newsletter with up-to-date information about the program will be provided.

Weekly themes are:

Week 1 — Welcome bags

Week 2 — Dragons

Week 3 — Princesses, Ninjas and Knights, Oh My!

Week 4 — Superheroes and Shields

Week 5 — Celebrate 4th of July

Week 6 — Bugs and Butterflies

Week 7 — Beach Week

Week 8 — Hippy Week

Week 9 — Christmas in July
