SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2022

SUMMER READING PROGRAM began on Monday, June 13th. Bring your kids to any branch of the library to discover ”Oceans of Possibilities”. For 6 weeks there will be fun crafts and activities in the library and to take home. Join us all 6 weeks or whenever you can. This week kicks off the program with a fun treasure hunt. Get your map and discover the fun activities outside the library as you collect fun surprises along the way. Then grab you packet and decorate a wooden treasure chest to put your loot in. The program is free. The recommended ages for participation are 3 years - 16 years. If you have a special needs child or adult that would like to participate please just talk to your librarian. We'd love to include them too!

The Summer Reading program will be similar to last year with weekly project / activity kits. This year there will also be some inside thelibrary activities. Weekly projects will be made into packets that will
be available for pick up inside the library Monday through Friday from 10 am until  5pm & Saturday 9 am – 12 pm, of each week, until they are gone. The first week you will also pick up a program folder with all the information. When the log is completed and turned back in to the library you will earn a special program t-shirt that will be ordered especially for you. The program begins June 13th.
You can choose to drop in and participate when you can, without completing and turning in the log at the end. (This is a great option for Grandparents who have kids visiting for just a week or two.) Do what works for your family. The program will run for 6 weeks and is targeted to children ages 3 – 16 years old. (Please let us know if you have an older or special needs friend that would like to participate. We would love to include them.) Participants will have 6 weeks to do fun reading, learning and civic activities to complete their log. For each accomplishment a parent or guardian will sign or mark the log.
Four more weeks left!!

PLEASE NOTE – THE DEADLINE TO TURN IN YOUR ACTIVITY LOG TO
THE LIBRARY or DROPBOX IS – JULY 25th AT MIDNIGHT.
THE T-SHIRT ORDER WILL BE PLACED THE FOLLOWING DAY.
