  • LOOK 4 TREASURE, the 2013 Children’s Library Summer Reading Program will begin at Livingston County Public Library on Wednesday, June 5.
    The storytime program will be presented at 10 a.m. and the craft program for children eight through 2 years of age will be held at 10:30 a.m. No registration is required for these Wednesday library programs and visitors are welcome. Children’s library programs will be held every Wednesday in June and July.
    Of special note, for the first time ever, the entire summer reading program has been funded in memory of Irene Higgins.
    “Her family requested donations be made to the Livingston County Library in memory of this loving mother and grandmother,” said Children’s Librarian Judith Shoot. “Her three daughters, Debby Higgins, Pam Quick and Trisha Wilburn, decided that the summer reading program was the ideal memorial for their mother, who attended these programs with her grandchildren for many years.
    “In addition, this reading grandma stopped by their homes with books to share on a regular basis,” Shoot said.
    With this additional money to spend on the project, extra gifts have been purchased to give away at each program. Children must be present to receive one. Each weekly treasure will be given away as long as supplies last to children from birth through age 12.
    Registration for the Independent Reader portion of the program is now open. Starting June 12  pennies will be counted for books read and stickers attached to the Treasure Folders. Children from birth through age 12 are invited to join; those not yet reading independently participate by counting books that are read to them. Registration will continue as long as folders last.
