2019 Summer Library Program

“A Universe of Stories” 2019 Summer Library Program at the Library

The Winston County Library is getting ready for summer reading with three different programs; tiny tots, children, and teens. The theme for this summer is “A Universe of Stories” which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. We have some great programs lined up that will be lots of fun!

The Tiny Tots program is opened to children ages 3-5. This program will be held each Monday in June from 9:30am-10:30am. Winston Children’s Librarian Andrea McHenry will entertain with stories, music, puppets, and crafts.

Children entering grades 1st- 5th are invited to come enjoy the fun programs planned for every Tuesday in June, starting with Magician Dorian LaChance June 4th at 4pm. The “Snakeman” Terry Vandeventer will be at the library June 11th at 2pm. Make sure to catch Stormin’ Bob Swanson, the singing weatherman on June 18th at 2pm. This is his first visit to the Winston County Library! We will wrap up our summer library program on June 25th with awards day at 2pm. After awards, we will have water day thanks to The Louisville Fire Department, snow cones from the Sugar Shack for $1.50, and the G & J Travelling Petting Zoo will be there! The grand prize for the reading program is a $50 gift card from Wal-Mart.

The Teen Program will be held each Monday afternoon in June at 2pm. The first program is June 3rd and we will be making DIY Galaxy Jars, June 10th will be DIY Galaxy shirt making. June 17th Dr. Angelle Tanner, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy from MSU will be at the library. The summer program will wrap up on June 24th with awards day.

Registration for the summer library program starts May 17th and will be open for several weeks. Only books checked out from the Winston County Library will be counted on your reading logs. Only parents or legal guardians can register children for the summer reading program. Children are encouraged to get a library card prior to the summer reading program. Children must be at least five years old to sign up for a library card. Any responsible adult 18 or older with a library card must complete the registration card and agree to assume responsibility for materials borrowed. For more information contact the library 662-773-3212.

“We are so fortunate to have local business to sponsor these wonderful programs each year”, said Librarian Beth Edwards. “Without them, we would not be able to have the high level of educational and entertaining programming that we offer.” “In addition to our corporate sponsors, the Louisville Banker’s Association is providing funding for reading prizes.”

Lunch and Learn at Winston Extension Office

The Winston Extension office is introducing a new program for 2019 that you may be interested in attending. The “Lunch and Learn” program will incorporate a broad array of educational topics that just about everyone can benefit.

The format is easy, we’ll meet just once monthly, each second Thursday at noon. You’ll bring your lunch and sit in on the topic, have lunch and learn something. Not only will you learn something, Lunch and Learn is great time to meet people in the community that may share the same interest, networking is an additional part of the program that expands the learning experience.

March’s program is “Office Exercise” and how you can burn calories, lose inches, and never leave your office. Recent research has shown that a sedentary lifestyle can be as harmful to an individual as smoking. Many of us have busy lives, and finding time to go the gym or working out after the workday is just not possible. But, if you have a lunch break, or can spare ten minutes twice a day at your office, this program will show you how to sneak that workout in and meet all your employer’s and family obligations.

So, put on your calendar, March 14th noon at the Winston Extension office, and let’s start a healthier lifestyle together.
