Summer So Far!

Hey guys,

So far summer has been SUPER awesome…. see what I did there with the whole super thing, ya know like super hero?  Okay, okay I probably think I’m funnier than what you do!

I hope you guys are reading up a storm and making sure to log your books either on our website (thecolonypl.org) or using one of our handy, dandy reading logs (that you can pick up at the library!).  If you haven’t been participating in the Summer Reading Club, it is not too late!  You can keep signing up, picking up logs, tracking books, etc. until August 7th!  I mean come on, you get free awesome prizes and coupons AND you get to come to Super Hero Training Camp (Saturday, August 8th)!

We’ve done some pretty cool stuff so far like have Office Kelli Hunt with TCPD come talk to us and let us sit in her police car, The Pipdillys came and sang us some awesome songs, Mark Shelton showed us some super cool percussion instruments, and that’s just a few of the things we’ve done and we have so much more to come!  Next Wednesday at 2, Brett Roberts will be here to teach us about Heroes Around the World and The Pipdillys will be back on next Thursday at 7 for our Family Fun Night!

The Que Pastas!

Today we had the awesometastic Que Pastas serenade us with some of their zany songs for our very last program for the 2014 Summer!  We all danced around like zombies and wiggled as fast as we could along to the music!

  We even heard a song about sunglasses which had to be sung with sunglasses on!  I think he might night some bigger glasses don’t you?

There were TONS of prizes to be handed out at the end and man were the Que Pastas enthusiastic about handing them out!  The winner were SO excited!

Hi Guys!

Hi everyone!  *waves excitedly*  I’m Miss Kansas (just like the state), the new Youth Services Librarian at TCPL and I am SO excited to be a part of your library!  Here are some fun facts about me: I have two dogs (Mollie Frog and Pepper Anne) and a cat (Tinker the Stinker).  My favorite movie ever is the Wizard of Oz and my favorite book is Pete the Cat!  I LOVE Pete the Cat!

This week has been my very first week here and I’ve already been a part of some really awesome stuff!  This week we had Fired Up About Reading with one of the super fun firemen from The Colony Fire Department and we read all kinds of silly stories and one of my personal favorites Dragons Love Tacos!  We also had Whirled on a String on Wednesday with Valerie Oliver and she showed us all some super cool yo-yo tricks and taught us some of the science behind it!

Next week is our very last week of Summer Reading Club so make sure you come in and join us for all of our final events for this year!  I cannot wait to meet everyone and I just know we are going to have a great time!
