Summer 2021 is about to get off to a phenomenal start. Dare we ask why? The library is creating a dynamic youth summer program that begins with reading but will offer so much more. We will take full advantage of the opportunity to be together outside and explore the world we share with creatures, large and small; furry and not-so-furry. Young participants from toddler to teen will learn interesting and exciting information through reading, listening and creating. Reading will help to connect us to the world of nature and show us how we can protect our environment and those who share our space. Fun and learning are ahead in a unique summer adventure that awaits us in July.
Beginning Tuesday, July 6th, if you are between the ages of 6 and 12, Tuesday and Thursday of each week through July 29th will be devoted to you. In addition to discovering stories of nature’s wonderful creatures and learning from individuals such as a park ranger or someone who studies nature, your afternoon will be filled with entertainment, including a scavenger hunt, a walk on the nature trail and the production of a puppet show. Each Thursday will be an opportunity to make your own statement in creative activities. Wednesdays are reserved for preschoolers through kindergarten who will hear tales of animal adventures.
Scheduled activities will be held each day between 1 and 3 p.m. at Put-In-Creek Pavilion unless otherwise noted. Lemonade and cookies will be served at each program.
Registration is required; however, participation in all activities is available at no charge.
