PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — The Mark & Emily Turner Memorial Library is celebrating the joys of summer reading through programming for children, tweens and teens. This yearâ€™s theme is â€˜One World, Many Storiesâ€™ and will take a look at storytelling around the world and close to home.
Children and teens can sign-up now to receive a reading log to keep track of all of their summer reading as they work toward their personal goals. As they reach reading goals, participants will receive prizes and incentives, including a free pizza from Pizza Hut.
To tie in with this yearâ€™s theme, weekly presentations led by community members will be held on Wednesdays from July 5-August 10, covering topics such as the Civil War, stories from West Africa, Miâ€™kmaq storytelling, and the brainâ€™s effect on how we read and tell stories. Children and teens can attend weekly movie matinees showcasing films from around the world or take part in regular Tween and Teen Book Club meetings. For younger children, Baby & Me Time is offered on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. and Saturday Story Time will be held every Saturday at Noon, offering lively story readings and activities.
The Mark and Emily Turner Memorial library provides access to a collection of nearly 60,000 items, including books, DVDs, magazines, and audio resources. Patrons also have free access to 11 public access computers and wi-fi access throughout the building. The libraryâ€™s Wii video gaming system and a selection of board games are also available for use during normal business hours.
