Teen book bingo, summer reading at West Bonner libraries

PRIEST RIVER - The West Bonner Libraries have lots of fun events planned for summer. For kids grades K-6, it's Summer Reading time. The theme for this year's program is Tails and Tales.

The fun begins at the Blanchard Library with a three day Summer Reading Day Camp on June 15, 16 and 17 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Priest River Library's Summer Reading will be held at Priest River City Park on Tuesdays, June 29 through Aug. 3, 10:15 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Online registration is available at www.westbonner.lili.org/summer-reading, or register at either library.

Preschool StoryTime on Wednesdays at 11:30 a.m. in Blanchard and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. in Priest River will follow the Tails and Tales theme this summer. However, StoryTime will not be held on June 16 and 17, or on June 23 and 24.

Thanks to a Make It @ Your Library grant from the Idaho Commission for Libraries, a special summer project is in the works for kids 12-18. Create virtual reality tours and games that center around the community. Projects will be posted on the library's Facebook page and voted on by the public. First and second place will receive Visa gift cards. There will be an informational meeting at 3:30 on Thursday, June 10. Call the library at 208-448-2207 or email [email protected] if planning to attend.

Teen Book Bingo is underway. Stop by either library and pick up a bingo card. Complete the reading challenges by July 31 to be entered in a prize drawing on August 1.
