Summer Reading 2022
'Read Beyond the Beaten Path'
Read Beyond
"Read Beyond the Beaten Path" the 2022 Summer Reading Program was a great success.
Mayor Nicholson kicked off the program by reading A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee before we decorated pennants for the library. We twisted balloons into animal shapes, explored musicial instruments from around the world, and grooved to the music of Rockabye Beats. Matt Gabriel came for a visit with his animals, and everyone got to meet them up close. We made slime and catapults, decorated binoculars and rocks, listened to stories and so much more! We also had fun each week adding stickers to create a mosiac poster.
Over 170 children & teens registered on Beanstack, reading for 2,200 hours. They earned over 200 books in rewards and won some cool prizes! Adults also joined in on the fun with 50 registering for our Beanstack reading challenge and reading 221 books.
Join us in summer 2023 to 'Find Your Voice'!
