Message from Chairman Scott K. York, Loudoun County Board of Supervisors
 
On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, I am proud to present the 2014 Loudoun County Public Library Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is Fizz, Boom, Read! bringing a summer of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fun to the library. The annual event offers hands-on experiences, educational programs, first-class entertainment and fun for every age. Loudoun County is fortunate to have such a dynamic library system that provides our community with free and equal access to a full variety of resources and information throughout the entire year. Please join me in thanking our business sponsors, the Loudoun Library Foundation, Inc. and the Advisory Boards and Friends of the Library who help make this annual program possible. Enjoy your summer!

It’s not just for kids anymore!  While the tradition of our Summer Reading Program remains strong, there are a lot of new things happening in the library.

Join us for this year’s program Fizz, Boom, Read!  June 16 through August 11. Learn about the connection between our everyday world and the universe through the family-oriented and NASA-sponsored program: Here, There, Everywhere, consisting of exhibits, posters and hands-on activities. Adults can challenge their writing skills by participating in the 4th Annual Write On! Contest and attending the Writers’ Conference. Teens can showcase their artistic talents in the Lights, Camera, Action! film competition and at the MiniCon anime convention. Our youngest learners can experience a sense of wonder at programs featuring musicians, storytellers, animals and scientists.

If the Summer Reading program sounds like a lot of fun, that’s because it is! It is also built upon the education fundamentals of learning and discovery to help our children avoid the summer slide and keep all of us engaged during summer vacation time.

Remember to mark your calendar for the Loudoun Library Foundation’s Annual Book Sale. It takes place from  June 20–22 at Smart’s Mill Middle School in Leesburg. You’ll find something for every age and interest and all proceeds directly benefit Loudoun libraries.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing in a summer of learning and fun!

Chang Liu, Director of Loudoun County Public Library
