0512 EOL Carnival
Preparing for this year’s Carnival are Charlotte Langley ( JWC of 100 President), Kacy Carroll (carnival Co-Chair), Anna Emblom (Carnival Co-Chair), and Dianna Browning (JWC of 100 Vice President).
You can dream up something special this summer with the children’s Summer Reading program at the Emmet O’Neal Library.
Your flight of fancy begins on Sunday, May 20, at the Summer Reading Kickoff Carnival, sponsored by the Junior Women’s Committee of 100. Big dreamers and small, dreamers on foot, on bikes, and in strollers, are invited to start the afternoon at 2:30 p.m. with the annual Thomas Hughes Brinkley Memorial Fun Run. The outdoor carnival follows from 3 to 5 p.m. and features game and craft booths, concessions and a train ride. During the carnival, Emmet O’Neal librarians will be on hand to register readers of all ages for the Summer Reading program. You’ll also see special guest DJs you’ve come to love – the guys from the Boosterthon! As a part of the Take25 Child
Safety campaign, there will be a booth where carnival goers can get a child ID kit. Tickets and registration for kickoff events are available starting May 3. All other Summer Reading programs and activities begin Tuesday, May 29. For details, call 879-0497 or visit www.eolib.org.
The dedicated members of the Junior Women’s Committee of 100, who plan and staff the carnival, are vital to the daily operations of the Emmet O’Neal Children’s Department. Their volunteers spend 200 volunteer hours helping in the Children’s Department each year.
