Libraries: Deep in the Heart of Texas
The 2009 Texas Reading Club, "LIBRARIES: DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS" provides opportunities for children of all ages to enjoy reading. It begins on June 17, 2009 at the Giddings Public Library & Cultural Center. This free program is co-sponsored by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and includes weekly reading activities and events for children ages 3-12.
"Just over 230 children read for more than 1000 hours last summer," said Library Director Pamela Hutchinson. "This year we anticipate that the children of Giddings will top that record and read for at least twice as many hours." Local businesses, Lee County citizens, school faculty and officials praise the public library continually for its efforts to help local school children maintain and improve their reading skills.
Information about the Summer Reading Club is available by calling 542-2716. Programs will run through July 30, 2009. The Giddings Public Library & Cultural Center is open Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays 10:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m.
