Summer Programs Kickoff Event at Betty Rodriguez Library

The Fresno County Public Library will formally launch its Summer Challenge and Lunch at the Library programs on Monday, June 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event will be held at the Betty Rodriguez Regional Library, 3040 N. Cedar Ave, near the corner of Cedar and Shields avenues.

Reading by Design, which encourages young people to use creativity and engage their minds in making the world a better place, is this year’s Summer Challenge theme.

Many family-friendly activities will take place during the kickoff. Kopi Sotiropulos will read to the children, the Discovery Center will conduct science experiments, and Wild Child Adventures will stage a bubble show. In addition to these performers, Clifford the Big Red Dog, McGruff the Crime Dog, and FCPL mascot Bentley the dog will be there.

In addition to these activities, representatives from family-oriented organizations will share information with the public, and lunch will be provided free to all children aged one to 18.

“Every summer, the Library looks forward to providing these programs to help our children stay on course for the upcoming school year, and have fun doing it. This year we continue to provide programs that will engage and challenge the children to combat summer learning loss,” said County Librarian Kelley Landano.
