to host event
The Prairie Community Library is pleased to announce its ‘Twas the Night Before Summer event on Friday, June 20th. This event is part of a national event to kick off summer and to promote reading all across the country. Over 2,000 libraries and bookstores nationally are celebrating the beginning of summer with this event.
“We are excited to have such a large and positive response from the library community,” said Todd Gyulveszi director of sales for the Mackinac Island Press. “What started as an event for some Michigan libraries has taken grass roots, word of mouth movement and before our very eyes is now a national event.”
This exclusive event will feature a reading of the new children’s book ‘Twas the Night Before Summer, children making Luna moth wings, coloring pages, free stickers and other fun activities for children.
‘Twas the Night Before Summer, which features a “Glow-in-the-Dark” cover is a wonderful tale of Luna Bee May, a Luna moth with a warm, southern charm who helps two young children re-discover the magic of summer. It is written by award winning children’s author Anne Margaret Lewis and illustrated by Wendy Popko, whose artwork is labeled as ‘Creative Freestyling Monet.’
“This is going to be a fabulous event,” says Stephanie Stokes, creator of LibraryPalooza.net. “It will be a great opportunity for book sellers as well as public and school libraries to launch a summer of reading for all ages.”
