PINSON — The Pinson Public Library is preparing to go into a summer full of events for children, teens and adults.
There will be over 60 separate events that will take place over the course of June and July, including craft programs, story time, Miss Kit’s Bubble Show, Iron
City Percussion, The Birmingham Zoo and more. Although the official kickoff has already happened, patrons are welcome to drop by the library anytime they’re open to register for summer reading.
“I love our patrons and our staff,” said April Wallace, Library Director. “We have some of the nicest people that come into our library. It has been very interesting to learn about the community and get to know individual members and their families.”
Teenagers will have the opportunity to participate in a weekly “adulting” program, teaching teenagers practical tasks to prepare them for the adult world.
Adults can participate in craft events, coffee and coloring and an Antebellum Alabama Presentation.
Summer reading has two components, reading at home to earn incentives, and attending weekly programs. Library patrons are invited to do one or the other, or both.
Children can read 30 minutes each day to earn a prize for the week beginning June 6. Teenagers and adults have bingo sheets, on which they fill out various tasks, and earn a prize for every “bingo” they make on their sheet.
“Our staff are very close because we have just a few people working here, and we have all put in a lot of hard work as the library has grown and changed in the last four and a half years,” said Wallace.
