Getting Kids Out Of The House, And Down To The Library
Jerome, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Libraries all over Southern Idaho – and the US, for that matter – have special summer reading programs to get kids out of the house and down to the library.
At 10:00 a.m. every Thursday in Jerome, the library features their summer reading program, which has the theme "Dream Big – Read!" The Jerome Library is showing kids movies at 12 noon on Fridays, and they have a kids gaming session Tuesday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. The program has about three more weeks before it wraps up.
Darbie Chocker, Youth Services Coordinator, says, "They do some crafts, play some games. Today in particular, we're having Space Adventures. So we have a very special guest from the Magic Valley Astronomical Society talking to them. We also have them making Alien Slime and Moon Sand."
Chocker says next Thursday morning at ten, they'll hold a family camp out at the library. Smokey the Bear will put in a special appearance. There will also be a teddy bear campout for kids and their stuffed animals.
