Join Our Summer Reading Clubs Today! – Fizz, Boom, Read (Grades 1-6) and Smart Start (Birth-Kindergarten)
Summer Reading Programs The following two programs begin June 30 and end August 14. Pre-registration not required – sign-up when you are ready to begin and participate. Fizz, Boom, Read Children entering first through sixth grade are invited to join. Keep track of the suggested activities and books you have read at home and receive prizes. At the end of the 7 week program, members who have read at least 6 books will receive a certificate, participation gift and an invitation to the Children’s Room Carnival on Friday, August 15. Smart Start for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers Learning begins at birth, so it is important to focus on early literacy skills even for the youngest children. To this end we are offering a program for children ages birth to 5 years. Participation is simple – just read, sing or do fingerplays with your child at home. Record the activities you have shared and we’ll have gifts for your child.
