The temperatures are rising outside, and you and the kids may just want to sit in the AC in front of the television, but don't let the heat stop your children's minds from staying active.
Junior Journalist Logan Arnold, found out Wednesday that imaginations run wild in the library.
Seven-year-old Kanon Hinson visits the library every other week.
Her mother, Kris Cannon, says, "She usually gets so many books that it takes her about two weeks to read them."
She says reading has always been a part of their family.
"It works on their imagination, it helps their creativity and they learn constantly, and it's better than TV," explains Cannon.
That's why she says Kanon takes part in the library's summer reading program.
Each week the library hosts a puppet show, reads a book and has a surprise guest.
"Libraries are fun, and reading is fun. So we do everything we can to show them that," says Children's Service Librarian, Sandra French.
She says the best part, it's all free.
"Everything we do in the summer, the reading program, all the stories are absolutely free," says French.
First grade teacher Erin Yawn says she's been reading to her daughter since she was an infant. She says the reading program helps prepare students.
"Those who have not been part of a summer reading program, you can tell their skills are not quite where they need to be," says Yawn.
Seven-year-old Jacqueline Exun is also in the program, because she says she loves reading and has a message for those who don't.
"I think their parents should turn off the TV or turn off the video games and tell them to go in their room and read a book."
The library is closed next Wednesday for Independence Day but will pick back up the following week with their Summer Reading Program.
French says they're also expecting Curious George to stop by.
