Parachute play on a Move-It Monday

We played with parachutes during Move-It Monday this week at our Read House.

We used the parachutes to play catch, pop goes the weasel—a stuffed skunk sat in for the absent weasel—and more.

Afterward, we played sidewalk games and made crafts.

This year, we’ve dedicated Summer Reading to getting people active mentally and physically. So we’re hosting a weekly series, Move-It Mondays, to keep kids moving at 1 p.m. every Monday through the end of July on our Read House lawn.

Each week has a different theme.

  • On July 11, kids can play old-fashioned outdoor games.
  • On July 18, kids will try different soccer challenges.
  • Finally, on July 25, we’ll be learning about nutrition.

It’s free for all families and no registration is required.

While you’re here, sign up for our Summer Reading program—teens and adults too! We have programs and prizes for everyone.

Everybody who participates in summer reading has a chance to win prizes. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning.

Kids who read or are read to up to 15 hours will also receive a Library Champion lawn sign and window cling.

For more information on our summer reading programs, call 440-255-8811 or peruse our website.
