Discover Summer Adventure at the Public Library

   With the school year winding down, your local public library is busy implementing its summer reading and adventure programs. Here's a run down of what is happening in your area.

   In Trinidad, the Carnegie Public Library invites all super sleuths and amateur detectives to join "Get a Clue @ Your Library," a ten week program of reading, recreation and rewards for kids of all ages. Children are encouraged to read or listen to books checked out from the library, participate in activities, keep records, and earn prizes while reviewing local history mysteries, and examining fascinating forensic evidence.

   Another program, "You Never Know," is a special series of mysteries, events, and puzzles of all kinds targeting young adults (8th grade and above). Young adults are also invited to serve as volunteers for the program, earning community service hours along with special library privileges. Even adults can become involved this year by participating in the mysteries of local history featured in the Historical Collection Room or simply by reading or listening to books by their favorite mystery authors.

   These various reading and recreational programs are scheduled from June 1 through August 11 and include special events of interest to all ages. Choose to attend all or just some of the activities depending upon your level of interest and time. Contact the library for a complete listing of programs and schedules for the various age groups. All activities are free to the public. Summer reading programs encourage children to explore books and their local library. Research indicates that young students who read (or are read to) are more likely to read at grade level or above, and exhibit greater comprehension in their general studies.

   Donations of time, materials, money, and talent are always greatly appreciated by the Carnegie Public Library and are used to promote literacy and life-long learning in an exciting and entertaining environment.
