Springfest, the Summer Reading Program kick-off event of the Brighton District Library is set for 1-4 p.m. Sunday, June 11, in Millie’s Garden. Participants will enjoy Jason Kollum’s juggling and stilt walking, amazing balloon art, ice cream, petting farm, giant bubble station, and a surprise appearance from one of our favorite princesses.
Participants will be able to sign up for the library’s eight-week “Build a Better World” Summer Reading Program, which runs June 11 to Aug. 5, and pick up a listing of summer events to help get started. It’s free and for all ages! The reading program encourages reading during the long summer months to help maintain the gain that is made during the school year.
Participants can also visit the library’s favorite tiger sculpture back in Millie’s Garden, following a two-year make-over by artist Sue Sanderson and weather proofing by Brighton Ford. The tiger has a fresh new look with colorful endangered animals painted on the body. There will be a name-the-tiger contest, too.
Springfest and the Summer Reading Program have been generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brighton District Library.
