Join us at the Hand 2 Hand Gym for a fun finale to 2016 Summer Reading. The two-hour event will feature opportunities for children to run, jump, tumble, and play. Patrons from both libraries are invited to this one culminating event.

Children must wear clothing free of zippers, snaps and ornamental decorations to be able to participate on the trampoline. Suggestions for clothing would be items such as gym shorts, sweat pants, yoga pants, and T-shirts.

Parents will be asked to sign a waiver at the door before children are permitted to participate.

Children will be encouraged to participate in five different activities to earn five jelly bracelets in Olympic colors. Showing those five bracelets at completion earns a prize. (There will be a special area for participants age 3 and younger.)

We are expecting large numbers of participants. This is a come-and-go event. Children are encouraged to leave once they have earned their prizes to make room for more children to enter and participate.

All ages are welcome, and registration is not required.
