We played classic sidewalk games during this week’s edition of Move-It Monday. We’re talking hop-scotch, marbles, sack races and jump rope.

We also created an enormous version of Kerplunk using tomato cages and PVC pipes that the kids could play.

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 with games and a craft.

  • On July 18, kids will try different soccer challenges.
  • Finally, on July 25, we’ll learn about nutrition.

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

And you still have time to 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.
