A Universe Of Stories!
Summer Adventures Registration Begins June 17!
Readers of all ages will explore all things musical this summer at the Whipple Free Library. This summer’s theme is “A Universe Of Stories!” Registration begins on Monday, June 17. Children in grades 1 to 6 can join a “Space Team” to keep track of their reading. The same registration date applies for younger children, ages 3 – 5, who can register for the Big Dippers” Read-To-Me program with an adult partner. This year for the first time we are offering the choice between a reading chart or a BINGO card for your summertime fun. School age children who receive a BINGO card from their teacher may choose to use that for the program. Children have the choice to complete the program by August 5 or by August 28 in order to receive a certificate and prizes. All of the readers who participate will get to put their name on a special banner which will be presented to NBCS on the first day of school! For a complete schedule of events and more information about the program, please come to the library.
Babies and Toddlers can sign up for the “Little Dippers” Read-To-Me program with an adult partner. They receive a BINGO card filled with activities to do.
