The OSL Library’s summer reading program, “A Universe of Stories,” will run from June 2 through Aug. 4. Each day they check out items, children, youth (through high school), and adults will receive a treat. In addition, the one who reads the most books in each age group during the program will receive a $15 gift card. Throughout the program, the Library will track and display the number of books each patron reads on planets on the “Universe of Stories” bulletin board. Each patron will also “testify” how God speaks to them through books by writing on their planet.
Middle School Youth are invited to join the countdown to Summer Blast with a Bonus Blast on June 12, from noon to 5:00 p.m. The Bonus Blast will begin with a lunch provided by the Summer Food Service Program (or bring your own packed lunch, if you like), followed by games in the Youth Room and Gym. Later, the group will help set up for Summer Blast and “test out” the bouncy house. No cost for these events, and friends are always welcome. Youth serving at VBS: stay, and make a day of it!
After each Summer Blast, at 7:00 p.m., high-school students are invited to stay for the High School Fire Pit, a time of conversation, relaxation, and some delicious s’mores. Bring a chair and enjoy the cool night air with John, Mollie, and your friends as we catch up on life and have a lot of fun.
