BRADFORD — Summer Reading Club Overview for parents, friends and family of home-schooled children, child-care providers and anyone interested in “Get Ready, Get Set…READ!” will be held by Cherie Roeth, library director, on Tuesday, beginning at 6 p.m.

This time should allow for school lessons to be over and children to be picked up from most childcare locations. We will be going over all activities for the various age groups, preschoolers through grade 1, grades 2-5, grades 6-12 and adults! In addition to promoting leisure reading during the summer. Bradford Public Library is very service-oriented and works very hard to complement the curriculums of the various school entities. Contact Roeth at 448-2612 for further information, and to sign-up so that appropriate materials can be made for you. We will be meeting in the library’s Community Room.

Bradford Public Library sign-ups for the Summer Reading Program – “Get Ready, Get Set…READ,” will take place through June 30. Applications, calendars and reading sheets are available at the library and any of our Staff Librarians can answer questions or assist you in any way. BPL will kick-off the summer reading program with a “Chalk Walk” event today May at 2 p.m. Each participant or team of two, will be assigned a section of the library’s sidewalk to promote an event that will take place this summer. Chalk will also be provided. After the artistic session, the sidewalk sections will be judged by a local artist and something special will be given to the top three. BPL is also very excited that the summer reading program will be advertised by our youth for everyone to see! Contact the library at 937-448-2612 to sign-up for a sidewalk section.
