Summer Reading Program

Through Friday, August 4
2:00 pm

The Summer Reading Program continues this month with several programs. It will conclude on August 4 with a party and performance by professional Oregon storyteller Christopher Leebrick at 2:00 pm in the City Hall auditorium. Share a Story, Build a World, Leebrick’s program, is sponsored by the Oregon College Savings Plan.

Students signing up for the program can enter to win a $500 Oregon College Savings Account and the child’s winning library also reveive $500.

Christopher Leebrick, has dazzled audiences with his remarkable storytelling ability since he was just thirteen years old. Children and adults throughout the United States enjoy his extensive repertoire of world folk tales, legends, whoppers, and original stories.

From the hills of Appalachia to the cowboy country of the Oregon high desert, from Edgar Allan Poe to Dr. Seuss, from native America to Africa, Christopher offers a cornucopia of the world’s most entertaining tales. Chris performs at school assemblies, library summer reading programs, festival concerts, college and university shows, church events, and perhaps the most fun of all — stories around the campfire!

The theme this summer is Build A Better World!
