The Morris Public Library begins its Summer Reading Program today with a theme titled “Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate and Discover.” While the building remains closed to the public, there is still curbside service for material pickups Tuesdays and Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays from 2 to 6 p.m., as well as a number of virtual activities. Library Director Anne Barber described on the KMRS Community Connection one of the logs that kids of all ages can participate in for a chance to win prizes.
“We have an activity log, kind of like a Bingo log, where kids can do different activities, complete it and then win a prize,” said Barber. “So, some of the activities that are more hands-on, not virtual activities, are reading books, using our curbside pickup, write and mail a letter to a grandparent, cook a new meal with an adult, read a book to someone else.”
While brochures of all summer library activities were emailed to students in the Morris Area, Chokio-Alberta and Catholic school, Barber said hard copies can be distributed curbside if people either call or email the library.
