Make sum­mer read­ing a fam­ily af­fair

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

We all know that school aged chil­dren should keep read­ing through­out the sum­mer break to main­tain skills, but what about tod­dlers and par­ents, grand­par­ents and care-givers? The Haskell Free Li­brary in Stanstead Que­bec and Derby Line Ver­mont wants to help your whole fam­ily make read­ing a fun and im­por­tant part of daily life.

Read­ers of all ages can travel the globe this sum­mer as the Haskell Li­brary presents “One World, Many Sto­ries” dur­ing their sum­mer read­ing pro­gram. Chil­dren will ex­plore places from around the globe through sto­ries, crafts, mu­sic, and other ac­tiv­i­ties. Back by pop­u­lar de­mand, we will host a week long morn­ing camp July 18th – 22nd for chil­dren who have com­pleted Kinder­garten through Grade 5. The 2011 Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gram is open to young peo­ple, preschool through young adult, with pro­grams, prizes, story hours, a read­ing club and more. Fam­i­lies are in­vited to join the Read-to-Me por­tion of the pro­gram. Adults are wel­come to ex­plore “Novel Des­ti­na­tions” with book dis­cus­sions and films set in ex­otic places.

Reg­is­tra­tion be­gins June 18th with a kick-off cel­e­bra­tion at 12:30 pm. All pro­grams are free of charge.
