Sign up for the summer reading program at our
Summer Kickoff Party on Wednesday June 25 6pm with Creature Teachers and The Nature of My Backyard. Explore the lives of the creatures living in our own backyards. Meet some of the common animals that we encounter every day.
When you sign up for the program you can keep track of the books you read on the Fizz Boom Read log or online.
For each book you read this summer, you can come into the library and place a marble in a beaker in our science display. (You can also choose an endangered or threatened bird for adoption)
Don’t forget; when someone reads to you or you read to someone that book also counts.
All the books you read also count for the Governor’s Reading Challenge
