Bradford library gears up for August


For the Daily Call



BRADFORD — Bradford Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is coming to an end soon, but we still have some great events in the month of August. Here’s what’s happening:

• Monday, July 31 — Our last Movie Monday and BINGO. 1-3:30 p.m. We will be showing “Brave.”

• Tuesday, Aug. 1 — Miami County Parks will be back with another great program on pollinators for all ages. Come see how our flowers are growing! Program will start at 2:30 p.m. and last about 1 hour.

Aug. 1 is also the last day for children to turn in their reading logs. Please have them in by the close of our day at 7 p.m.

Our “End of Summer Olympics” will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 2, from 1-4 p.m. We will be joining with the Community Club to hold this great event in the YMCA yard park. Kids will participate in silly games and have the chance to win a gold, silver or bronze medal in each age group. After the games we will have our big prize drawing. Any Summer Reading Program participant will be part of a drawing for big prizes and is sure to leave with a prize. This event is replacing our drawing held at Stillwater Prairie in the last few years. Students must be present to win a prize. If weather does not cooperate, we will have games at the Community Club followed by our prize drawing.

Monday, Aug. 7, at 6 p.m., we will have our drawing for adult prizes at the library. Entries for adults must be turned in by 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4.

We hope you have enjoyed the programs and events over the summer, as our staff has enjoyed planning and hosting them. We have really enjoyed seeing everyone READ over the summer and hope you have enjoyed it, too!
