Summer Reading Club
The first full week of SRC has been a busy one at Parsons! On June 8, Ohio Nature Education entertained over a dozen kids with many different birds and insects. On June 9, our meeting room was packed as 42 people gained spaces on their reading records by reading to the therapy dogs. This was a great way for families to enjoy Summer Reading Club together, and it helped the younger kids practice their Ready to Read skills on a captive audience!
On June 11, we hosted Renuka Bhatt and the whole branch enjoyed getting henna tattoos – even the staff got in on the fun! Displaying our henna designs to the patrons was a very effective way to advertise the program, and many kids said they’d be back later in the summer when Renuka comes to visit us again.
