World Cup

GOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!  Now run around the field screaming with your arms stretched out!  We are in the midst of the World Cup, and I thought this is the perfect time to get the ball rolling.  We have been so busy here at the library with the Summer Reading Program, Fizz, Boom, Read - where you get a whole bunch of free prizes just for reading - and all of our awesome programs, I have had hardly any time to watch the World Cup.  But now, I am calling a time out, and we are going to get down to the nitty gritty.

First of all, the World Cup is down in Brazil this year, and you have to check out this street art link!  Go ahead, do it now...I will wait....Okay, wasn't that beautiful, fascinating, and amazing?!?  I have to admit, the art work is probably my favorite part of the whole World Cup experience, especially when seen though Google Street View.  Rua 3 might be my favorite.  Which street do you like best?  After taking a look around, I think it is the perfect time to break out the paints, and make your own artwork.  Paint flags, soccer players, or just a celebration of color with some abstract art.  Another fabulous idea is to get some books about Brazil from the library.  After seeing some of the real live streets there, you may want to read how people in Brazil live, or about their traditions.

I wouldn't want to play against them!
Of course, in celebration of the World Cup, it would be a perfectly splendid idea to go play some soccer.  We have a number of books on soccer as well - how to play, soccer around the world, soccer superstars, and more!  And don't forget, any reading you do about Brazil, or soccer, or art, or anything really counts towards your minutes for the Summer Reading Program.  It is a win-win!

So what are you waiting for?  Get out and play ball and come on in and see us here at the library.  We can help you bring the World Cup home.
