Kids learn to love storytelling at summer reading program

The Suwannee River Regional Library System has officially launched their summer reading program at the Madison and Lee Public Libraries. On Tuesday, June 30, the Every Hero Has a Story Program, for ages 4-12, began at 10:30 a.m. at the Madison Public Library and kids from all over the community attended. Program coordinator, Danny Graves, read stories and spoke about the incredible impact story telling has made on the world. Graves taught the children that stories have been passed down from generation to generation. While Graves read a story about the wild west to the young guests, his assistants acted out scenes with puppets.

After story time, the kids were shown a film about Paul Bunyan. Fun was had by all in attendance. The Unmask! Teens program is every Tuesday, from 2-3 p.m. and is described as a program specifically for teenagers. The Super Heroes Preschool Storytime program is every Thursday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and preschoolers will enjoy books, stories, puppets, crafts, creative dramatics and lots of audience participation. The Super Hero Fun Days program will be Thursdays, lasting from 2-3 p.m. and participants will enjoy a variety of special guests, movies and crafts.
