Hey parents and kids! Summer reading program starts soon! I am bummed we wont be meeting in person, but I have some really fun stuff planned for this summer. June 17th begins craft/activity pick up, so please call or email the library to schedule a pick up time. Or once the library opens, you can come and pick up in person, but please be sure to follow any policies the library has in place to keep every one safe and healthy.
I am attaching a google form to this post, please fill it out so I know how many kids are participating in the first week of summer reading. You can also send me an email at [email protected], Just let me know your kids names and ages so I can be sure to have enough materials for everyone.
Readers of all ages will dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story as the Boulder Junction Public Library presents “Imagine Your Story” children’s summer reading program. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there will not be any in-person programs; however, children will still receive reading logs, pick up “take and make” activities and view virtual presentations.
Children age preschool through 8th grade are welcome to participate starting June 17th. The library is offering a variety of “take and make” crafts, activities, brain teasers, and virtual presenters.
Children who participate will also receive a weekly reading log. Every 15 minutes of time read is another chance to win a prize. Children may also count audio books as reading time. Reading logs can be returned through the outside book drop.
Here is a schedule of weekly themes.
