KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE AT THE LIBRARY

As we embark on another fun summer, we'd like to remind everyone of our Safe Child Policy:

*Children under 10 years old must not be left alone in the library. A responsible caregiver (age 13 or older)

must supervise children in the same department of the library. If the child is in a library program, it is

recommended that the adult remain in the building during the program.

*Tweens and teens ages 10-17 may use the library unattended, assuming their behavior is not disruptive to staff

members or other patrons.

*Parents or legal guardians are responsible for their children's behavior in the library. The library staff will assist

children with using the library, but will not act as caregivers for children.

Our Board of Trustees has adopted this policy to help ensure the comfort and safety of all patrons. For a copy

of our entire Library Policy, including Safe Child Policy go to www.effinghamlibrary.org

Thursday, July 18

Message from the Director, Amanda McKay.

When a child is inspired to explore and wonder about the world, a dream is born.

When a teenager sees a creative solution to a problem, a dream is nurtured.

When a parent connects with their child through reading, a dream grows.

When a senior unites with their family and history through technology, a dream continues.

That's what your library provides with technology, programs, and books. The library is like rocket fuel, waiting

to launch and feed a thousand dreams in your community, but in order to continue, we need your help. With

your support of our capital campaign, our new building will inspire even more dreams.

Please consider giving generously to our campaign for the new library.

Contact Amanda McKay, Library Director at: 217-342-2464

Summer Reading Exchange Bookshelf

Non-resident participants in the Summer Reading Program who do not have a library card may borrow books

from our exchange shelf located near the front door. (Books will be marked with a “Summer Reading

Exchange” sticker.) For each book brought in from home, non-resident participants may borrow an exchange

book for summer reading. When the book is finished, simply return the exchange book and trade for another.

Search for the Golden Book

Back by popular demand, a daily search for the Golden Book in the Children's Department (Monday through

Friday). Be the first person to find the Golden Book and receive a small prize. (Participants may not receive

more than one Golden Book prize a week.)

New Books, New DVDs

We have lots of new items, books, DVDs and audio books coming in over the summer months. If you can't find

what you're looking for, then just ask a member of staff, and we'll help you find it. If we don't have a copy

here, we can request a copy from another library for you.

Road Trip

Going on a road trip? Check out an audiobook and listen to it en-route. Or take advantage of our digital

library, Library On the Go, which allows you to download eBooks and audio books wherever you have an

internet connection. Ask at the Info Desk for more information.

Say Cheese!

For program promotion, photographs may be taken of participants from time to time. If you do not

wish to have your photo taken, please notify the photographer and/or the class/event organizer.

Remember - No Library Card, No Problem!

You do not need a library card to take part in the Summer Reading Program

or to attend events or classes at the library!

Thank you to our sponsors!
