Get ready for a JAWSOME good time

The 2013 summer reading program has been fun for children, teens and adults. 

The fun isn't over yet! 

If you are in the 6th grade or higher, join us Tues., Aug. 6 for our final summer reading program event - the Shark Week Party! 

We will celebrate all things shark. Create a shark tooth necklace, play shark Bingo, and make and eat your very own shark candy sushi, while watching shark movies. 

Shark Week Parties will be held at three locations

  • Bealeton Library - 4:00 p.m.
  • John Barton Payne Bldg - 6:30 p.m.
  • John Marshall Library - 6:30 p.m.

To get ready, here are some fun "shark facts": 

  • There are over 470 species of sharks.
  • Most sharks do not live in freshwater, but the bull shark and river shark can survive in both fresh and salt water.
  • A sharks teeth are constantly replaced throughout their life; some sharks lose 30,000 or more teeth in their lifetime. 
  • Jaws, the 1975 thriller about a man-eating great white shark, was the highest-grossing film in history at the time.

See you Wednesday, Aug., 6th - its gonna be a JAWSOME good time!
