WILLARD MEMORIAL LIBRARY NEWS
 
With the coming of June all the excitement of summer is about to begin at all four locations of the
Huron County Community Library. Plan to take part in our Summer Reading Programs that run from June
5 thru July 15. The theme this year is “Build a Better World”. There are lots of activities and events
planned to interest both youth and adults.
Our Willard Memorial Library location will kick off their summer reading on June 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the
Willard City Schools with live SHARKS!!! The Wave Foundation is bringing live sharks for you to touch!
Get up close and personal with these majestic creatures and also see several animal artifacts like shark
jaws, shark eggs, a can of shark fin soup, etc. This event is open to all ages.
It’s easy for adults to take part in summer reading. Simply read and fill out a book rating sheet and get a
chance to win one of our prizes. Stop in to sign up at any time starting June 5. Be one of the first to sign
up and get a coloring bag full of goodies.
Our Annual Huron County Community Library Mind, Body, & Sole Program also starts on June 5.
Sign up and get a free pedometer while supplies last. Take a moment to read something every day and do a
physical activity. Keep track on your log and return it to the library as you hit each milestone, then receive
an incentive prize for each of those milestone. Prizes at the conclusion include Kindles, Fitness Trackers,
and more!
The Willard City Parks and the Huron County Community Library are hosting “Yoga in the Park” in
