Summer Reading Program
The summer just got a whole lot cooler! Join us as we celebrate our theme “Oceans of Possibilities” from July 5 through July 28. Children from toddlers to seventh grade are eligible to sign up for a reading log at the Lawrence County Public Library beginning June 27 and earn prizes and books during the month of July. Join us at 3 p.m. for the kick-off party on July 5 at the Moulton Lions Club! All summer reading events and special events are free and will meet on Tuesday afternoons at the Moulton Lions Club at 3 p.m. Families that read together succeed together. Children who read during the summer gain reading skills, while those who do not can slide backward. Termed the “summer slide” and affecting millions of children each year, teachers can spend at least one-month re-teaching materials students have forgotten during that time. The Lawrence County Public Library keeps learning fun throughout the summer break! Take part in the summer reading program through our presenters and prizes. Summer Reading events, prizes and books for all ages are made possible with support from the United Way of Lawrence County and the Friends of the Lawrence County Public Library.
Children's Story Time
Children’s Story Time will resume on Tuesday, June 7th @ 10:30 a.m. The program meets weekly and is open to children from infancy to five-years-old. An adult must accompany children. Library Story Times play an important role in early childhood literacy. According to the Program for Early Parent Support, “children benefit from hearing another adult read to them, from watching other children get engaged in a story, and from being exposed to a wide variety of authors and writing styles. Your child will also learn some essential school readiness skills, like how to sit still for an extended period of time, how to pay attention to an adult other than his parents, how to take turns, and how to be (reasonably) quiet in a public place.”
