Hames’ Sunrise Village welcomes the Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile this summer! The “library on wheels” will visit Sunrise on the first and third Thursdays of each month through August 17, from 1:30 to 2:30pm.
Sunrise managers are there to greet readers with cool drinks and snacks. Books and DVDs for adults and kids are available to check out.
“We wanted to spread out from downtown,” says Shawna Riggins, Iowa City Bookmobile Assistant. “We especially want to reach out to kids. We’d like to avoid the ‘summer reading slide’ and keep kids reading and engaged and ready for school in the fall.”
Sunrise Village is embracing the bookmobile project with a reading reward program! Kids are earning entries for each book they check out. Sunrise is selecting one boy and one girl to receive a NEW bike and safety helmet. The drawing will be held on August 3, and a special party with food, drinks and fun on August 17. All Sunrise residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
