Good news, neighbors, summer has finally arrived here in Ohio! What goes better with sunshine and sitting poolside than diving into a good book? Summer reading here at Rocky River Public Library is a very big deal. We have generous support from our Friends organization that allows us to offer really great summer reading programming and prizes for all ages. If you’re reading this you already know how rewarding reading is, but to be able to have a little fun and win some neat stuff along the way just makes it that much more exciting.
This year our summer reading theme is Universe of Stories, and with the 50th anniversary of the Lunar Landing we just had to dive headfirst into the a space theme. Our weekly baskets all come in a space themed re-usable Baggu, and include $50 gift cards to local retailers, books, and handmade wool dryer balls that we jokingly say look like little planets or moons. But even if you don’t end up winning a basket, just for signing up you can stop by our reference desk and get a custom made moon phase calendar. Theses calendars will help you keep track of the moon phase from June 2019-May 2020.
In addition to these great weekly basket raffles, we are also giving away one grand prize. All entries will be entered into our grand prize raffle for a $100 Visa gift card and a Lego Nasa Apollo Saturn V kit!
