For the past 6 years, Upper Clements Park has been our partner in the Summer Reading Club. As many of you know, when you finish the Summer Reading Club, you can earn a FastPass to Upper Clements! How cool is that? The good folks at Upper Clements Parks donate around 2000 FastPasses to the library each year. And they do it for other regions, too! For our region alone, that adds up to a donation of over $50,000!
As partners, we've built a great relationship with the park. We help out at School Days each year, with educational activities for school groups that attend in June. We've also been out at the park in August for Word in the Park. This year we have a StoryWalk activity planned: read the StoryWalk signs and answer a question and get a prize (including free books!) We also have a couple of special guests lined up—Geronimo Stilton and Clifford the Big Red dog will be there! Use your FastPass and join us on August 17-18 for this fun event!
If you've never been to the park, you are in for a treat. There's a wooden roller coaster, a flume ride, paddle boats, a train, and loads of other activities. There's music and other entertainment, and of course, food! Cotton Candy! Fries! Candy Apples! Ice Cream! And hot dogs, hamburgers, and a whole list of other goodies. To find out more about the park, just visit their website for times, ride details, pictures, and more.
And if you've signed up for our Summer Reading Club, get your reading finished up by August 20, because that is when we close up the SRC and relax for a few minutes. Come see us by then to get your FastPass and to enter for our other prize draws! See you at the park!
