WATER CARNIVAL KICKS OFF 2010 SUMMER READING ON SATURDAY, JUNE 5!

WATER CARNIVAL KICKS OFF 2010 SUMMER READING ON SATURDAY, JUNE 5!

WATER CARNIVAL KICKS-OFF SUMMER READING PROGRAM

Davenport Public Library is making a splash this year by offering a fun-filled, action-packed water carnival as the kick-off to the Summer Reading Program, based on the 2010 theme, “Make a Splash – READ!” Come to the Fairmount Branch Library (3000 N. Fairmount Street) on Saturday, June 5, any time between 12 and 4 p.m. for an afternoon of adventure! The first stop will be signing up for the reading program. We’ll have information about the program and the grand prizes on display, plus calendars of all our splashy events taking place this summer.

Once you’ve signed up, stay for the carnival! We’ll have loads of games, including: Rubber Ducky Races, Feed the Shark Bean Bag Toss, Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa, Gone Fishin’ Prize Pond, Hula Hoop Challenge, Water Balloon Toss, and Duck Pond. All of these fun games will earn kids tickets which they can use to purchase prizes from our prize booth. We’ll even have a dunk tank where you can take a turn at dunking your favorite teachers and librarians!

If carnival games aren’t your cup of tea, go crazy in the jumpy house or on the giant inflatable slide, provided by QC JumpZone! You can also get splashy with the Davenport Fire Department, and learn the basics of sailing with the Lake Davenport Sailing Club.

We’ll also need your help getting the Library looking splash-tastic by decorating a fish with sparkles, glitter, tissue paper, cut-up magazines, and other embellishments. The decorated fish will proudly hang in the windows of our children’s department all summer!

Hy-Vee will be on hand to serve you lunch. You can buy hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, and other summer treats hot off the grill! Then cool off with a smoothie, soda, bottle of water, or a nice iced-coffee from Cam’s Coffee House. Food and beverage prices vary.

The Summer Reading Program is for all-ages, and we welcome patrons from anywhere in the Quad Cities. This free event is sponsored by the Davenport Fire Department, Lake Davenport Sailing Club, Hy-Vee, and QC JumpZone.

Join the Fairmount Branch Library for its last OBI film on Wednesday, May 19 at 6:00 p.m. for “Days and Clouds.”  Enjoy free popcorn and lemonade while you watch how the physical spaces throughout the film influence the quality of Elsa and Michele’s relationship.  Is Michele able to keep his job or if he loses it, what are the consequences?

This fascinating group will soon be moving to the Eastern Avenue Library beginning this fall.  We look forward to seeing you there on May 19 at 6:00 p.m.  For more information on this program, please contact us at 563-328-6833.
