Summer is just around the… solar system? The children’s room will begin the 2019 Summer Reading Club on June 3rd and together we’ll boldly go into the cosmos exploring, “A Universe of Stories!” This year’s theme encourages young readers to recognize the breadth, depth, and vastness of the stories around us and to explore new genres and authors. As usual, we have a variety of story media in our collection including books, books on CD, “Playaways,” and graphic novels.
Multiple activities will be provided through the summer to engage club members in outer space themed crafts and games.
To get started in the Summer Reading Club, come visit the children’s room near the end of the school year to pick up your reading club booklet and stamp sheet. A universal bookmark, including a schedule of events, will also be available. Then begin your cosmic mission by choosing books to read while the autopilot navigates your rocket, or CDs to listen to while adjusting a satellite on a space walk.
Land-based missions are also available; not all accomplishments this year require reading a book. You might choose to go for a hike (choose your planet carefully), cook a meal for your shipmates, or write letters to friends and family back on Earth. Return your mission booklet back to the children’s room and the librarians will award you a “spacetacular” prize for your accomplishments and bravery.
We’ll conclude the reading club with a pizza party that promises to be Out of this World!
