Be Creative@ Your Library begins in June

Do you love to paint? Or maybe you dance? How about play an instrument? Then you’ll want to “Be Creative@ your library” this summer.

Tons of awesome books await readers at their local military library, where the world of the arts will come to life. Come sing silly songs, make neat crafts and discover good books during the fifth annual joint USAFE and IMCOM-Europe Library Summer Reading Program.

Each week, participating libraries will offer special programs and activities encouraging kids to keep up their reading skills while having fun. Kids will keep track of the books they read to earn prizes and certificates.

Parents are encouraged to get involved by visiting the library with their children to sign up for the program. They can also check out the library Web sites that feature tips and activities for kids and parents to enjoy as a family. And, of course, the libraries always have books for children and their parents to check out and read together.

The Be Creative @ Your Libraries 2009 Summer Reading Program begins at military libraries in Europe as soon as school is out in June.
