Chilton-Clanton Library plans Summer Reading Program and more

By JERRETT POSEY/ Intern

The Chilton-Clanton Public Library will be hosting a Summer Reading Program this June. It is open for everyone 18 and under, and will be held every Tuesday in June at 2 p.m. in the library. Participants will receive a blank book at the beginning of the program and will write and illustrate in it for the duration of the event. Once completed, the books will be on display in the library for the week following the program.

There will also be fun activities during the program such as: rock painting, sand art, painting birdhouses, playing with slime and a pizza party on the last day. For anyone wanting to join online, they will be hosting a livestream at 3 p.m. on Facebook as well. Those joining online can pick up a book from the library in advance and drop it back off at the end of the program for them to display.

The library would also like to remind everyone that they are doing Story Times again. For children birth to 2 years old, it is every Tuesday morning at 10 a.m., and for ages 3 to 5 years old, it is on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. The children will be read stories and be able to participate in several different fun activities planned for each week.

The library is excited to be hosting in-person events again and helping to foster an interest of reading in children’s lives, according to Children’s Librarian Renee Chambers. She also wants everyone to know that library cards are free for all school-aged youth who want one.
