We have a wide variety of new easy readers for kids to enjoy this summer! This is a great way to work on a bingo, which counts for both the library and for HOCO Elementary School this fall.

Don't forget our We Grow Corn series tomorrow afternoon from 1pm-2pm. We will be doing Unit 3: Growing Corn.

In Unit 3 kids will learn how corn grows and what is needed to grow a healthy corn plant. Farmers are faced with many challenges throughout the growing season. Insects and weeds may impact the plants badly. The amount of water will also determine how much the corn plant will produce.

We will be making water beads bracelets and coloring!

Summer Reading Programs

A Summer Reading Program is offered each summer for kids of all ages.

Summer Reading starts June 2nd, 2021 with a Kickoff Party at 2pm during which we will watch the new live action Dumbo movie.  Regular summer reading session will be held every Wednesday from 2-3pm June 9th-July 30th. The theme for this summer is Tails & Tales and we will focus on different “Tails” each week.  There will be stories, guests, crafts, games, weekly reading challenges, and more! We will also have an end of summer bash on August 4th featuring the movie Dolittle to celebrate the end of summer and what a good job the kids have done with the program.

We are also offering a We Grow Corn series which focuses on a family farm here right here in Kansas.  It shows the process on how crow is grown from start to finish along with what happens to it after harvest.  Session will be every Friday June 4th-July 9th from 1-2pm.  These sessions will have short videos, readings, crafts, and snacks all provided by Kansas Corn STEM.
