Programs include stories, music, and movement in a lively, half-hour session followed by a craft or other activity. Discovery Times are programmed for children aged 18 months to 5 years, and are offered on Mondays at 10:30 a.m. and again at 11:30 a.m. Parents are encouraged to attend the program with the child. No registration is required and no fee is charged. This summer the library is also offering our exciting Summer Reading program. This year’s theme is “Camp Explorer.” Many exciting activities and speakers have been lined up during this six-week program. Aimed toward independent readers, primarily of elementary school age, the program’s goal is to encourage kids to keep reading during the summer months. This year’s programs will feature a number of guest speakers including visitors from the Ogden Nature Center and Eccles Dinosaur Park, and local author and illustrator Lynn Champagne, and adventurer/mountaineer Mike Loney. The programs will take place at the Ogden Valley Branch in Huntsville on Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. from June 28 to August 2. Each session will last 60 to 90 minutes, and will feature our presenters and numerous fun activities. Registration is required for the Summer Reading program, and can be completed over the phone. For more information, please contact the staff at the Ogden Valley Library at 745-2220.
