School is almost out, and summer is almost here.  At the Honey Grove Library, that means a summer full of reading challenges and programs.  


June 7 - David Gish will be at the library with magic, balloon art and facepainting.


June 14 - Ms Maria will return with her interactive “Cool School” program.


June 21 - A new program will be at the library featuring Dr. James Pennington from Texas A&M, College Station, TX.  This program, Texas A&M Chemistry Road Show, will be full of lights and explosives.  It will be for all ages, but appropriate more for children in the third grade and up.  To get this program, we had to schedule nine months in advance.  


June 28 - Carl McEachern, the magician, will return. 


Week of July 4 - No programs.  The library will be closed Tuesday, July 4 but will reopen Wednesday, July 5.


July 12 - Bobbi Hoenigman will be back with her mini-horses.


July 19 - Jessica Womack, the nature lover and citizen scientist, will be back to present a presentation on bugs, birds, and all things pertaining to nature.


July 26 - the “grand finale” will be the Petting Zoo.


Our “reading challenge” for this year will be 1,000 Minutes of Summer Reading.  Last year winners received electronic devices, and this year the prizes will be geared toward “building a better world”.  Make plans now to save your Wednesday mornings for the Summer Reading Program at the Bertha Voyer Memorial Library.  All programs are free and open to all ages. We do ask that parents attend with their children. Last year, we had 50 to 100 plus in attendance, and we are hoping for even more this year.
