The Winters Public Library concluded a successful weekly Summer Reading Program. An average of 48 children attended the programs during the month of June.
New this year during July was the addition of school readiness activities for preschoolers, reading along with an adult for school age children, and math tutoring for those students wanting to maintain or sharpen those skills.
Children who attended programs during July received a free swim pass as an incentive. The program culminated with a Swimming Party on August 3 for those children who had consistently attended sessions throughout the summer.
The Library appreciates the many volunteers and parents who helped make
this summer so special. Henry Munoz and Kimberley Rogers of Region 15 Education Service Center Head Start Program used music and movement for a very entertaining time with the preschool group.
Dianne Davis shared stories and activities with the preschool group during June. Robert Campbell provided math and literacy tutoring all summer. Susan Connor engaged the older group in tai chi moves. Nancy Spill and Kristi Guerin guided the group through active outdoor games.
Sandy Taylor discussed healthy snacks and helped the children prepare their own healthy snacks of tortillas and toppings. Nancy Robinson Masters talked with the children about being an author and read a select book for their pleasure. Other library board members and community friends
assisted to make sure the children enjoyed their experiences.
