While the Lakehills Area Library is open to limited, in-person interactions, its Summer Reading program is available for youngsters to take part in online, officials said.
Library Director Dianna Landes produces a reading video and an instructional video for a craft activity each week that is available to families through the library’s YouTube channel. The videos are released each Monday at 5 a.m. for youngsters taking part in the reading program, called the To-Go Program.
Last week, about 50 students signed up to take part in the craft program on “Unicorn Slime,” and Landes is hoping for another big response when a program on paper crafting is offered to youngsters in two different age groups this week.
Those involved in the program can pick up supplies for the craft activities at the library, located at 7200 FM 1283 in Lakehills, each week.
Officials have asked those families interested in taking part in the program to call or email the library to sign their children up so they can make up enough supply packets for the free program.
Youngsters in the program also can pick up logs to record all the books they read as part of the reading program.
The library’s phone number is 830-510-2777, and its email address is email@example.com.
Activities in the reading program could change in July and August, so patrons are urged to check the library’s website, at lakehillslibrary.org, regularly to see what updates have been announced.
Since last week, the library has been allowing up to 10 patrons at a time to enter the building to search for books, make copies, find a quiet place to read or to complete other activities. Each visitor over the age of 2 is asked to wear a face mask
The library is open Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Officials use the last hour of the day for cleaning.
Those who don’t feel comfortable going into the library can still get books and other services from library officials by calling or emailing officials with requests beforehand. Library staff will deliver books and help with other services to the door.
Individuals needing access to free WiFi can access that in the library’s parking lot.
