Celebrate a summer of super reading with Super Ann!
"The Super Ann Show"

Look! Up on the stage! It's a magician! No, it's a juggler! No, it's a comedian! Wait' it's a little bit of all three! It's SUPER ANN!

Ann Lincoln will perform amazing feats of strength and courage in this one-of-a-kind Magic, Juggling and Comedy Show.

When she finds out that "Every Hero has a Story" Ann is inspired by the people and characters in books she has read.

In her show she will escape from a strait jacket, juggle bowling balls and even bring along some of her "Wonder Pets" to perform also!

The Friends of the Lafayette Library will end the evening with ice cream for dessert!

***Reminder-- the library will be closed on Saturday July 4th in observance of the Independence Day holiday. We will be open our normal hours on Friday July 3rd and Sunday July 5th.***

Read, sing, talk , play and write with your young child this summer for
Lafayette Public Library’s summer reading program for
early learners, ages birth-five.

Track the number of activities you share with your child online or at the library. Visit the library to pick up an activity log with ideas or download one using the link in the menu on the left side of this page.

Sharing books, songs and rhymes with very young children helps them to be ready to read when they are older.

Establish a routine of reading aloud with your child every day.

Play is important, provide
opportunities for imaginative play and join in on the fun!

Read. When children see the important people in their lives
reading they will think reading is important too!

Visit www.clel.org for more information about supporting your child's language and literacy development!


Collect prizes when you have completed 10, 20, and 30 activities. At 40— collect a bonus prize!

Prizes awarded June 8th– July 31st or while supplies last.
