What summer recreation activities are free, fun and close to home and neighborhood? You guessed it; School is out, libraries are in! "Friend of the Family with Dr. Susan Turben" explores your neighborhood library as the perfect summer place to be! Colorful library rooms filled with treasures are perfect places for families to enjoy musical or literary events! Dr. Susan Turben invites Dennis Heritage, children's literature expert and head of the children's wing of the Mentor Public Library in Lake County, Ohio to share with listeners reasons why children and youth need to keep up book-reading and game-playing during summer months. Call in during the hour-long show at 1.866.472.5792. Dennis Hermitage believes in a "book-break" every day and a trip to the library every week! Books, magazines, ipods, CD's, DVD's thriller videos, handheld devices, keyboarding and board gaming help keep libraries a top vacation spot while insuring that families' brains stay fine-tuned all summer long!
