The youngsters have already been asking about it, and the staff have already been preparing for it. (If you were at Topsham Public Library last Saturday morning you saw Dave and I cutting out stars and putting together children’s summer reading packets.)
Many of you already know the drill, but for any who may not, Topsham Public Library hosts a Summer Reading Program for children, that means babies, too, all the way up to adults. The rules differ slightly for each age group (which we will happily go over with you when you pick up your packet), but basically you can earn prizes by reading. And we have some pretty good prizes.
Topsham Public Libray also hosts special activities in conjunction with the summer reading program: Wednesday, June 22 at 10:30am there is a family concert featuring Matt Loosigian; on Friday, July 8 at 10:30am Lindsay will come with her Puppet Pals; and on Wednesday, August 10 at 10:30am we are having a DANCE PARTY!! This is just a smattering of what we have lined up for kids. We will also have programming for teens and adults, so stay tuned!
So, after you are done fishing at the Fishing Rally on Saturday, swing by Topsham Public Library and pick up your summer reading packet!
