We are currently looking for volunteers to provide programs and help fund our program. Please contact the library if you can help!
The Clark County Library’s Summer Reading Program for 2019 will be themed “A Universe of Stories.” This program includes two components: events and activities to entertain and educate children and a rewards program for reading! Both of these components will be offered at the Arkadelphia and Gurdon library branches.
The 2019 events series will include a weekly storytime, a weekly craft program, and a weekly event/activity. The events and activities are currently in the planning stages, but will include visits from the zoo, a magician, musicians, and more!
Reading during the summer months is so important! Children who read during the summer are better prepared for school in the fall and those who do not are often several months behind. Because of this we fight Summer Slide by encouraging kids to read though games and incentives. This year local children will receive books as prizes for completing their reading challenges.
