Libraries offer creative summer activities for youth
Summer is almost upon us, which leaves parents searching for ways to keep their children active and entertained. The local public library system holds a number of activites, and today we’ll take a look at what Alachua County Public Libraries have in store with their summer reading programs and events. Earlier WUFT-FM’s Emily Burris spoke with Alachua County Library District Marketing and Public Relations Manager Nickie Kortus about their plans to keep kids engaged and reading all summer long.
Citrus County Public Libraries are also gearing up for a summer of not only reading, but also fun entertainment that includes everything from musical performances by a local teen band, to nature presentations from the Homossassa Springs Wildlife State Park. WUFT-FM’s Emily Burris spoke with Citrus County Public Library System Communications Facilitator Sabrina Smith about the programs in store for Citrus County kids and teens.
