A Universe of Stories
June 3 – August 10
This summer you can travel into outer space just by reading a book! Each week we will be exploring a different space destination with our summer theme of A Universe of Stories.
Help Prevent “Summer Slide”
Studies show that children who read in the summer do better in school in the fall. The library’s summer reading program is a fun and easy way to help develop your child’s love of reading.
How to read for fun and prizes
Children and their families are challenged to read all summer long. Children can record the number of minutes they read in a log held at the library. Library books, comics, magazines, eBooks – if you can read it, we count it. Each week, prizes are given to the readers. The goal is to read 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Child not reading yet? – We count being read to the same as reading.
Besides a weekly prize, books will be given away when goals of 500 and 1000 minutes have been read.
Adults and teens can also join in the fun by reading and entering drawings for prizes for each book read over the summer. E-books and audio books count as well.
Summer Space Bucket List
Each week there will be different things from our “bucket list” for families to participate in. The list will involve food, movies, and books based on the weekly space destination as well as activities for creating and exploring together. Pick up your summer “bucket list” from the library anytime between now and August 10. It has some great ideas that our librarians have researched for you!
Follow our calendar and facebook page to keep abreast of all the events happening at the library this summer. Weekly events will include Storytime for Littles (under 3 years of age), Preschool Storytimes (for those 3 through kindergarten), Stem activities (designed for school age students). All week long a different STEAM project will be available focusing on a different space travel location that reading might take you to. These projects are geared for school age students.
