There will be plenty to do for children and adults this summer at the Hayneville Public Library.

The Summer Reading Program is set to being next week and signups are currently going on, according to Library Director Rutha Davis-Bonner.

Davis-Bonner said programs would be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. beginning on June 11 and ending July 18. This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories,” and celebrates outer space and the 50th anniversary of the first man on the moon.

Davis-Bonner said parents could come by the library, located at 215 B East Tuskeena St. in Hayneville to register children between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

“We will have story hours, art and crafts and field trips,” Davis-Bonner said. “We will also have refreshments and there will be prizes given away.”

Davis-Bonner said the library is also always looking for volunteers to help with the Summer Reading Program and those interested or with questions about the event could contact her at (334) 548-2686.

“We usually have a good number of children in the program,” she said. “The STEP Program comes over once a week and those children are here. Our children go on a field trip with them.”

Davis-Bonner also said she is working on a workshop for adults on how to use Ancestry.com  and is seeking people to sign up now. “I don’t know when we will hold the workshop,” she said. “I want people to register and we will set it up.”

To sign up, register at the library or call Davis-Bonner at (334) 548-2686.
