Full summer line-up at Haskell
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 wave their nerd flag proudly this summer as the Haskell Library presents “Fizz Boom READ” during their summer reading program. Children will explore the sciences through stories, crafts, and other hands on activities. Back by popular demand, we will host a week long morning camp July 14th-18th for children who have completed Kindergarten through Grade 6. Pre-registration has begun and space is limited.
