Read like a pirate at Germantown Community Library | Events
Shiver me timbers!
Pirates have taken over the Summer Reading Program at Germantown Community Library, 1925 Exeter Rd. Participants of all ages can earn Books Ahoy! Summer Reading T-shirts and other amazing plunder for reading or listening to books through July 31. Registration for the children's and teen's programs closes July 15. No library card is required for registration.
Each area of the library has been decorated to reflect the summer reading theme. The Children's Department pirate ship, designed and built by Charles "Junior" Koehl, provides a perfect reading spot for children and parents. Other decorations were created by staff from each department. Visitors can find books or sign up for computer use at the Information Desk, which has been outfitted as a ship complete with sails, rigging,and cannons, then check out their favorite reads at the Circulation Desk, which has been transformed into a picturesque "treasure island."
As part of the Books Ahoy! Summer Reading program, landlubbers and sailors alike are invited to special events for all ages throughout June and July. From magic and music to storytelling, there's something for every interest.
To learn more about participating in the Books Ahoy! Summer Reading Program or special events, call 757-7323 or visit www.germantown-library.org.
