Dig Into Reading
Now it's even easier!
If you live in Murrayville or the surrounding area and find it too hard to make into Jacksonville for the summer reading program we have great news for you! Cindy will be at Murrayville School every Monday from 1:30-2:00PM to register kids for summer reading, log their reading time and hand out prizes! She will be at the playground on the West side of the school to help make sure that everyone can "Dig Into Reading" this summer!

Dig Into Reading
Summer Reading Program
Dig Into Reading will soon be here! It all starts on May 28th with Babaloo from St. Louis at the Kick-off party!
We will have lots of fun things to do this summer - entertainers, movies, Gross-ology 102, story time, crafts, make and takes and parties! 9 weeks of fun!
The Pre-K reading program has a new reading log this year, that incorporates activities along with reading time. The grand prize for the Pre-K set is a family membership to the Henson Robinson Zoo! To win all you have to do is read and play with your child!
For the K-6th grade crowd, we have some changes too. It's the traditional program where you keep track of the amount of time you read, but this year, you can do some good with your reading time. In place of a prize, you can choose to pick a can of food to give to the food bank instead. We have the cans of food here, so you don't have to do anything but read, read, read!
The grand prize for the K-6th grade crowd is a trip for four to Chicago on Amtrak and passes to the museum of your choice! To win all you have to do is read for 25 hours and you are entered for the grand prize drawing!
It will be lots of fun this year, so join as as we "Dig Into Reading!"
Story Time Schedule
It is a new year and we have a new story time schedule for 2013! The afternoon session will change to 3:00PM, while the morning session remains at 10:00AM.
We will have new topics to cover each week! The first Wednesday of the month is where we will learn about living with disabilities like blindness, deafness and other challenges. If you have a disability in your life, you are welcome, but it is a great chance for those without disabilities to see life from a different perspective!
The second Wednesday of each month is our time for classics! This is our chance to explore older stories and dig into other topics!
The third Wednesday of the month is "Let's Learn!" We will learn something new every month! From music to art to nature, it is a time to get your hands onto different topics!
The fourth Wednesday of each month will continue to be our Touch A Truck session! We have a different big truck come every month! So far we have seen snow plows, UPS truck, ambulance, utility trucks, and so many more! Curious about what we do? Check out the photo album and you will see!
Join us for fun, stories and good times every Wednesday at 10:00 & 3:00!
Check out these two really good websites for finding your child's next book!
Is a website that James Patterson created to share book reviews and suggestions for kids from birth through teen years. It offers a nice variety of suggestions for every age.
This website breaks books into subject headings and has some very good reviews along with suggestions for other books.
