Jumping through June!

June is a month of jumps: jumping from mild weather to warm, short days to long, and few activities to many. It's a month of jumps at the Roselle Public Library District, too—especially when it comes to activities, including summer reading!

This year's summer reading theme is Read for the Win!, a literary celebration of sports and athletic achievement. Children, adults, and families who complete the requirements of the program get their chance to win our grand prize giveaways, including a Kindle Fire HD 6" tablet, tour and tasting certificate from Lynfred Winery, three-month fitness pass to the Roselle Park District's fitness center, and more!

Everyone needs more donuts in their life, and everyone needs to plan something special for Father's Day. You can accomplish both at Donuts with Dad!, Sunday, June 19, 1:30-2:30P. Share your favorite doughy treats with Dad and participate in stories, crafts, and games! This is a drop-in event; no registration required.

Now that school's out, many kids might be spending their summer days at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Everyone can spend their summer afternoons at Grandparents Got Game!, held each Wednesday through August 10 in the Meeting Rooms, 1:30-3P.

Each session of Grandparents Got Game! focuses on a different theme. Next Wednesday, June 22, dial up your do-it-yourself spirit with DIY FUN! Participate in a milk jug toss, decorate kickballs with fabric paint, and race through a course of straws with zig-zag racing.

Then on Wednesday, June 29, honor Independence Day a little early with Patriotic Paper Day! Make an Uncle Sam mask and patriotic windsock, pilot paper airplanes, practice your plumbing with a pipe cleaner bracelet, and more.

Backing up a bit, we find Robo Demo on Thursday, June 23, 1-2P. Learn about building robots and watch an exciting demo by Triton College! Registration is required by visiting our online calendar, by phone (630.529.1641), or by visiting the Circulation Desk.

Maybe your garden needs some help in the heat of the summer. If so, the DuPage County Master Gardeners will be on-hand at the Master Gardeners Help Desk, Monday, June 27, 6-8P to green up your thumb (and your garden) again!

Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by University of Illinois Extension educators to provide a network of gardening and horticulture programs for educating the public. All information provided is based on research from the University of Illinois.

And on Tuesday, June 28, 7-8P, travel the waters and wonders of the Northeast with Coast of Maine Travelog, presented by world traveler Ralph Danielsen.

The rugged coast of Maine threads 400 years of history among its quaint fishing villages and picture-perfect lighthouses. We'll boat around the islands, check out some down-east art, walk in the footsteps of great American poets, see presidential vacation homes, and explore many picturesque harbors, all washed by high tides and Atlantic fog.

Registration is required by visiting our online calendar, by phone (630.529.1641), or by visiting the Circulation Desk.

Jump through June with the Roselle Public Library District!
