Rantoul Public Library
Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover! Summer Reading is going virtual this year!
Each week, there will be a new bingo sheet and activity calendar to go with the theme of the week. Complete a bingo sheet to earn a prize for that week.
While we aren’t tracking reading this year, we still encourage you to read daily! Several of the squares on the bingo sheet are related to reading. Activities include prerecorded programs from Champaign County Forest Preserve District, Museum of the Grand Prairie, and Absolute Science! Weekly take home craft bags and print outs of the weekly activity schedule and bingo sheet will be available for pick up by curbside appointment.
The curbside activity pickup times will be: Thursday and Friday mornings from 9 am – 12 pm and Monday afternoons from 2 pm – 4 pm . The first day for pickups will be Monday, June 15th between 2 and 4pm. PDF files of the activity calendars, bingo sheets, and for more information will be uploaded to this page of our website: http://www.rantoul.lib.il.us/summerreading.html.
If you are unable to print them from home, they will be available for pickup during the pickup hours for the take home crafts. Prizes will be available for pickup in the late summer or early fall, depending on when we are able to safely reopen to the public.
The program begins on Monday, June 15th, and runs through August 1. To sign up, email Joella, the Youth Services Librarian, at email@example.com, OR call the library at 893-3955 and speak to Joella. At Rantoul Public Library, 217-893-3955, 106 W. Flessner. www.rantoul.lib.il.us
