Eva McNear Read 1000 Books!

Congratulation to Eva McNear for completing the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program! Eva received a certificate and a book of her choice upon completion. She chose one of her
favorite books “Bone Soup” by Cambria Evans for her collection. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is open to preschool children, and helps them get ready for school and reading. Reading to your child is one of the best ways to prepare them for future reading success. If you would like to have your child participate in the program and would like more information about how to get started stop in or call Lepper Library at 330-424-3117.




Rocks and Minerals on Display at Lepper Library

Be sure to stop by and see the new display at Lepper library. We have a new collection of ‘Rocks & Minerals’ being shared by Jason Leggett. His collecting began when he was 8 years old when his Great Aunt Ruth Bye piqued his interest in Geology and Paleontology.  Jason has an extensive collection to share, and has identified each item on display.

Next month, the Summer Reading Program will begin and to coincide with the theme “Oceans of Possibilities” he will bring in and display Marine Fossils. If you have a unique or fun collection that you would like to share, contact Dolly@lepperlibrary.org or call for
more information at 330-424-3117.

Monthly Craft – Patriotic Barn Quilt – Thursday, May 12th at 5:30 pm or 6:30 pm

In this class we are painting a quilt pattern onto a 5 x 7 canvas. You will be able to display this festive decoration all year long or during any Patriotic holiday. We provide all of the supplies and offer the same craft at two different times to ensure social distancing. Please call to reserve your spot as spaces are limited. If you are unable to attend call and ask for a kit to go.






Summer Reading Program for Children, Teens & Adults!

The Summer Reading Program is back and in person at the library! Oceans of Possibilities registration begins June 1st. You have the option of signing up by using the Reader Zone App (more details coming) or stop by the library to register and pick up a packet. The children’s weekly programs will be held on Monday’s at 11:00am excluding the holidays. In collaboration with other libraries in our county we will offer various ocean themed programs such as, Mermaids, Pirates, Octopuses, Sharks, and more! The finale will include making boats and having Tin Foil Boat races.

There will be programs for adults and teens too! This program is a great way to jump start your summer and is for the whole family. There will be prizes and incentives along with the satisfaction we get just from reading.

As part of Summer Reading we will have the popular Story Stroll twice along the Greenway Bike Trail and Lisbon Square. This is a fun and educational way to read a story while being active. There will be a craft at the end of the story to pick up and take home to make.

Check back here or watch the local newspapers and social media for further announcements.




1000 Books Before Kindergarten

This is a great way to start the preschoolers by reading with your child and loving books. We will give you the sheets to keep track of the titles as they are being read. Even if you read the same book more than once it counts. Show us the sheets as they are being completed. There is a measuring chart at the library in the children’s room that tracks your child’s progress. Watch as your child’s name climbs after each sheet of 100 is recorded and they’re progress moves up towards the 1000 books goal. Once completed they will receive a free book of their choice. For more information stop by the library.
