Make summer reading a family affair
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. For more information stop by the library at 93 Caswell Ave., Derby Line or 1 Church, Stanstead. You may also contact Librarian Nancy Rumery at (802) 873-3022 or (819) 8762471 ext 201.
