End of Summer Slideshow - 2023
Programs & Activities
Groups will meet by grade-going-into at different times each week at the Library,
and *special* programs will be held for everyone Thurs. at 2, at the Brundidge Station.
Regular programs usually involve a craft, story time, activities, and a snack.
Special Thursday programs usually have an entertainer come and perform.
Each child will read and compete by Reader Group (instead of grade level) to earn prizes. The reader groups are independent readers (suggested for Grades 7th - 12th Ages 12 - 18), early readers (suggested for Grades 2nd - 6th Ages 7 - 11), or family readers (suggested for Grades Pre-K - 1st Ages 3 - 6), depending on their age and reading level (see full descriptions under registration).
Children's reader groups may also affect difficulty of crafts and activities.
Reading will be logged in the Reader Zone App
Sign up and sign into Reader Zone from 06/01/2023 - 07/14/2023
to record how long and what you've read from.
(P.S. you have to log books and time read in the ReaderZone app
at least once to get an invitation to the Awards Day Party!)
All children who read and participate in the Summer Reading Program will receive a prize, and special prizes are awarded to the top readers in each reader group and to the top overall reader
Studies show that for reading success to happen, access to books is critical.
The public library is an excellent free resource for families to access books of a wide range of interests and reading levels, as well as a place where librarians can assist children and families in selecting great books.
We especially encourage reading for fun during the summer months and don't stress AR points or levels so much as interest in a topic or theme.
Children who see reading as a treat and not a chore will feel more inclined to explore the shelves, searching for their next favorite book. The library cares about your children and has planned programs to keep them reading and learning all summer.
While keeping track of the amount of time they spend reading or the number of books they have read this summer, children who join the summer reading program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed.
Thank you for allowing your children to attend the Summer Reading Program!
Our goal is to keep the minds of the children active through the summer and to encourage a love of reading (fun is also important).
