Library programs not just for kids

Summer library programs are not just for kids anymore.

We salute our Albert Lea Public Library staff for the work they’ve done in making this year’s summer reading program the best ever.

From weekly fun programs for kids, to interesting programs for adults, a book club, trivia, storytelling and re-enactors, the library has found something for everybody.

There are incentive prizes for those who read every day, thanks to local merchants. It’s all in the name of getting people to use the incredible gift of reading, and to foster a greater love of reading in children.

As the summer continues, we hope more people will continue to explore the 10 great reasons to read:

1. Read to understand the past.

2. Read to explore your world.

3. Read to plan for your future.

4. Read to visit new places.

5. Read to create great things.

6. Read to make a good decision.

7. Read to have fun.

8. Read to exercise your mind.

9. Read to keep in touch.

10. Read because you can.

We salute the library staff for reminding us of just how much fun reading can be.
