Mendon’s Summer Reading Program a Real Victory

Taft Public Library celebrated the end of this year's Summer Reading Program on August 23 with a fun afternoon of circus acts, games, prizes and of course, ice cream.

The event kicked off at 4p.m. at the Clough Elementary School Cafeteria with a performance by Marvelous Marvin Novogrodski and his Brain Circus.

Marvelous Marvin kept his audience entertained by juggling, spinning plates, hula hooping, and doing magic tricks, all while talking about how our brains grow.

"Your brain is a very busy part," said Marvelous Marvin. "When something is hard and you keep at it, your brain grows and your neurons connect."

The audience also had a chance to test out their own circus skills as they used the props to juggle, walk on stilts, tame the rhythm sticks, twirl rings, or hula hoop in two different directions at the same time for a half hour of laughter and flying objects.

After the show, raffle prizes were given away to both kids and adults, and everyone was treated to ice cream.

This year, 313 children were registered for the summer reading program On Your Mark, Get Set...Read!, a feat that was "a real victory" according to Library Director Andrew Jenrich and Children's Librarian Tara Windsor.

"We didn't even kick off the summer reading program until the beginning of July because of moving into the new library," said Jenrich. "We still had great participation, even with the abbreviated summer."

The library moved into their new space at 29 North Ave. on June 30 from the old location on Main St. next to the Town Hall.

Although this year's summer reading program may have been delayed, having a new space to run all of the events in, more than made up for it according to the librarians.

"It was so nice to have all of this space to host a lot of these events onsite at the library, both inside and outside," said Jenrich. "I think it helps families and kids make the connection that these are library events."

Now that the summer reading program has wrapped up for the year, the staff at the library will spend the next few weeks "settling in" and getting prepared for the Grand Reopening which scheduled for September 13 from 5 to 7 p.m.
