On Saturday, June 30, Youth Librarian Erin Groth hosted this year’s summer reading kickoff party at the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library. It was a rockin’ afternoon as staff, volunteers, and WTBBL patrons celebrated this year’s theme of LIBRARIES ROCK! with music, games, prizes, and fun.
More than 40 WTBBL patrons are participating in this year’s summer reading program, and their ages range from infants to 18 years old. Summer reading is a by-mail program for WTBBL, with special in-person events scheduled throughout the summer to promote braille literacy.
Other events hosted by WTBBL for the summer reading program include Rock the Stacks, a Harry Potter Party on July 14, as well as Dig in, a mini museum hosted by the Burke Museum where patrons can dig and explore real fossils, rocks, and gems on July 28.
