Summer Reading 2019
'A Universe of Stories'

A Universe of Stories

A Universe of Stories! The 2019 Summer Reading Program was a great success. Mayor Hawke kicked off the program by reading “Hey-ho, to Mars we’ll go!” and joining us in a game of space Bingo. We twisted balloons into alien creatures, and viewed the stars over Gardner in a planetarium show. We were enlightened by the science and stories of the ScienceTellers, and entertained by the music and songs of Davis Bates. Rainforest Reptiles came for a visit, and everyone got to meet the reptiles up close. We made planets, and comets, and flying saucers. And everyone had fun adding stickers every week to create a mosaic poster.

Over 200 children registered, reading for 1,800 hours.

Join us in Summer 2020 to Imagine Your Story!
