During the summer, the library offers a summer reading program for kids up to age 12. Children participate by keeping track of books they read (parents can read to younger children) and receive a reading certificate and book prize at the end of the summer.
Each summer has a different theme, and there are weekly activities, guest entertainers, and special family events and prizes. The theme for Summer 2021 was "Tails & Tales," featuring stories about animals.The summer 2022 theme will be announced. In addition to online storytimes and curbside crafts, in 2021 we hosted a number of outdoor, in-person events this summer. Performers included the Rainforest Reptile Show, Flying High Dogs, children's concerts, puppet shows, and more!
We are grateful to Rockland Trust Bank for sponsoring our annual summer reading program and to Debby and Richard Danner for sponsoring the 2021 concert series, children's take-home crafts, and many other events.
