Summer Reading, Weather and Fun
School lets out for summer this month but that doesn't mean so long to reading. Here at the Orange County Library System, we will be celebrating reading all season long as part of our annual Summer Reading Program. We have a host of fun, free events scheduled at all locations so students, please don't miss out on the excitement. On Friday, June 15, Radio Disney will bring its road show to the Main Library with music, dancing, prizes and more.
And summer reading isn't just for kids. Once again this year, OCLS will offer an Adult Summer Reading Program as well. This entertaining series includes weekly programs, selected readings and contests with great prizes.
Unfortunately, summer also brings hurricane season and OCLS can help you prepare for any storms. This month, the library is teaming up with meteorologists from Central Florida News 13 to present a Hurricane Preparedness seminar. This informative session will be offered at the Southwest Branch on Monday, June 18 at 7 p.m. Come learn how to plan ahead and keep your family safe.
Father's Day is this month as well and kids are invited to join us at the Orlando Public Library on Saturday, June 9 for a craft-making class to create a special gift for Dad. This session will be offered in both English and Spanish. And to all the Dads out there, Happy Father's Day from the Orange County Library System!
