“Dig Into Reading!”, the 2013 Summer Reading Program is open to children from age 3 to grade 6. We have planned programs to keep children reading and learning all summer long. Activities may include programs on dinosaurs or construction vehicles, animals that live underground or Ancient Egypt, caves, rocks and more. Children who join the summer library program keep their brains active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed. Registration begins on Monday, June 17.
Babies and toddlers may also take part in summer reading when they join the “Little Diggers” Read-To-Me” program with an adult partner! All programs are free of charge and open to children of all abilities. Reading Rocks @ the Library!
This is a program designed to help develop early literacy skills. The babies and toddlers enjoy stories, songs, fingerplays and nursery rhymes with their caregivers. Typically 20 to 30 minutes in length.
Preschool Story Times (3 to 6 years-old)
This is a 30 to 40 minute program consisting of books, songs, crafts and other early literacy activities. This program is a great opportunity for children to begin learning kindergarten skills and behaviors while having fun.
Currently there are three junior book clubs. We combine book discussion with snacks and fun activities. The children are exposed to different genres and different points of view. Junior book clubs meet once a month.
Reading Goes to the Dogs
This wonderful program will continue in the new year. We will have the dogs, Hobo and Ruthie, along with their owners Toni and Greg Gualtiere, on Wednesday afternoons right after school and on Thursdays at 5:30 pm. If you are interested in your child participating, contact the library at 487-3391.
