SUMMER READING! Yes, it’s that most wonderful time of the year! This year’s program has a science theme: “Fizz, Boom, READ!”, which we are *very* excited about. We began June 2nd, to ensure no reading “down time” at the end of the school year, and go through August 3rd. Our brochure outlines some of the highlights coming up, plus explains the guidelines. It’s a self-paced program, encouraging kids to read (or be read to) EVERY DAY. Please come sign up any time we are open! KEEP IN MIND THAT THE LAST DAY TO GET TICKETS IS SUNDAY, AUGUST 3rd.
Save the date: Prize Picnic is Friday, August 8th. Drop by between 11 and 1 with your lunch to pick up your prizes and enjoy free books, balloon animals, cookies, and fun!
Various classes and activities are going on just about daily: Lego Club, read to a teacher, science workshops, toddler groups, etc. – - come check the sign-up sheets in person!
If you are interested in donating a prize, we would love to talk to you very soon – thank you!
