Summer is flying and quite often, it feels as if June is busy with camps and sports but things begin to slow down around July. Swimming and playing are all fun, but don’t forget to read!
Have you checked out your local library’s summer reading program?
Olathe has “Find Fido” every Friday. And children receive a treat once they visit the library and find him. They also offer free movies and “Storytime in the Park.”
Check out their program here: http://www.olathelibrary.org/kidsprograms

- Ernie Miller has a special “Storytime Under the Stars” tomorrow night. Info can be found here: http://www.erniemiller.com/calanderpage.html

(I have found that going there right when they open and are fresh and clean, is a good time to drop by and play with tokens. And, you can get out of there before lunch-score!)
