Summer Reading

 

Construction Engineer Boy-copyright sirikorn/Fotolia.com2017 Children's Summer Reading Clubs

Open a book to "Build a Better World" this summer! Not only is reading fun, but you can learn more about our world and what we can do to make it a better place for everyone.

Students entering grades K-6 can join the ELEMENTARY ENGINEERS, and children ages 5 and under can be part of the CONSTRUCTION CREW. Both summer reading clubs encourage children to read, or be read aloud to, for at least 20 minutes a day.

BABY BUILDERS, for babies birth to 18 months, focuses on enjoying early literacy activities with baby, including rhymes, singing and clapping.

The special programs for children of all ages include storytimes and book fun, puppets, music, live animals, science, crafts and yoga. The elementary school children will be bringing home the Summer Reading Brochure when the librarians visit the schools. Or you can explore the library calendar to find out about the activities scheduled from June 19 to August 19.
