You can Dig It at the Cottonwood Library
The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program at the Cottonwood Public Library is “Dig into Reading.” Kids and teens can plan on six weeks of summer fun with a different activity each day. Register your child from June 3-8. Each week features a different theme, including Gardening Week, Insect Week, Animal Week, History in the Dirt Week, Mining Week, and Minerals Week. Activities during the week correlate with that week’s theme. Enjoy movies, crafts, special activities and Saturday morning cartoons. Win prizes just by reading your favorite books. For a calendar of Summer Reading Program events, go to the library’s website at www.ctwpl.info or stop by the library at 100 S. Sixth St. in Cottonwood. For more information, call the Youth Services Department at 340-2788.
Open Book Readers’ Group meets
Share your joy of reading and learn about new books you may enjoy from other book lovers. The Camp Verde Library Open Book Readers’ Group continues through the summer. Meetings will be held on the first Tuesday from June through August - June 4, July 2, and Aug. 6, 2–4 in the afternoon.
Each meeting gives readers a chance to tell others about books they’ve enjoyed. Unlike some book clubs, attendees are not asked to all read the same book and any adult may come to one or all of the meetings. Come prepared to tell others about books you’ve read recently and would recommend to others.
Meetings are held in the Camp Verde Library’s Large Print Room, 130 Black Bridge Road. For more information call Gerry Laurito at the Camp Verde Library, 554-8384.
