Super Sleuth Summer Reading Program 2007

Super Sleuth Summer Reading Program at Stockton Public Library 2007
For our detective theme for our few weeks of activities we had all types of volunteers help us out. We really want to send out a great big THANKS! to all who participated and helped.
We started our Summer Reading Program on Wednesday, June 6th and Thursday June 7th with the library staff assisting all the children in making detective case books, secret code deciphering books, name badges, and dective hats. This was a very busy week for all in attendance.
June 13th & 14th we had special guest storytellers, Kelly Buss and Karen Reed give a program on I Spy. Everyone did mystery guessing games, and made I spy bottles. We read a short story to the younger group on Wednesday and on Thursday the older children did a math mystery with a little help from their peers.
June 20th & June 21st we had Officer Don Jenkins Jr., and Officer Tammy Post fingerprint everyone in attendance in the I-denta Kid program and explain how everyone has their own special finger prints and DNA. Everyone also got to make some fingerprint artwork to take home with them.
On June 27th and 28th we are having Anna Muir, with the Rooks County Extention Office here as the Mad Scientist and she always has a very interesting and exciting program for us.
Over the July 4th Holiday we are not having Summer Reading Programs.
July 11th and 12th Chris Davis a dog handler will bring the Sniff Detecting Dog out to the library to show all the children how the dog works and detects for the police departments.
July 18th and 19th Jon Voss will be here at the Library to show the children how to make their own invisible ink. Each child will get to take home some receipes that they can use to make more at home later.
For our grand finale the Stockton Public Library, Stockton Lions Club, and the Stockton Rotary Club is sponsoring a Movie at the Nova Theatre, where all the children that participated in the Summer Reading Program will be able to attend the movie "Agent Cody Banks" and receive a small popcorn/pop combo at the theatre.
Again the Library wishes to extend a great big THANKS to all who contributed to the GREAT SUPER SLEUTH SUMMER READING PROGRAM of 2007 at the STOCKTON PUBLIC LIBRARY!
