County libraries have full schedule of summer programming


OGEMAW COUNTY — Kids may be getting out of school, but local libraries are making sure they continue learning and reading through their summer reading programs.

Both the Ogemaw District Library and West Branch District Library have planned weekly programming for the month of July, and kids will be able to keep reading logs for a chance at prizes.

This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories,” with crafts and programming centering around the idea of space. The theme is chosen by the Collaborative Summer Library Program and used in libraries across the state, as well as in other states.

At the West Branch library, Program Coordinator Lorie LeVasseur said one hour of reading equals one prize, with up to 10 prizes up for grabs for each child. At the Ogemaw District Library, Director Jeanette Leathorn said every child who enters the program and reads at least one book will receive a prize, and the top five readers will receive something extra. Leathorn said the district’s branches will also be hosting crafting before the special guests’ programs.

Both districts are currently signing kids up, and library cards are not required to participate. For more information, call the West Branch District Library at 989-345-2235, the Ogemaw District Library in Rose City at 989-685-3300, the Skidway Lake branch at 989-873-5086 or the Prescott branch at 989-873-5807.
