Take a journey into outer space and learn about the solar system from a whole new vantage point. Fight monsters, solve puzzles and write a heroic epic about your adventures. Launch your fashion career by designing and sewing your own dress. Create the perfect soundtrack to an animated film. The Orange County Library System gives kids a chance to try all that and more with camps, classes and programs taking place at all 16 library locations as part of the annual Summer Reading Program. The annual program is about more than just books – it gives kids of all ages a chance to participate in camps and activities that are fun, educational and free with a valid library card.
Some highlights of this year’s program include three awesome live-music concerts with zany dance-pop duo Koo Koo Kanga Roo and performances from popular kids’ entertainer and host of the PBS Kids morning progam breaks Steve Roslonek of SteveSongs; summer celebrations with games, prizes and music at all branches featuring radio personalities from MIX 105.1 FM; and a chance for kids of all ages to win prizes at the end of summer for reading books and participating in library activities.
