SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2010: Go Green @ Your Library

We are busy preparing for the 2010 Summer Reading Program: Go Green @ Your Library. This summer’s programming will have an environmental focus including: Felix Neck Sanctuary, Polly Hill Arboretum, and Gus Ben David’s Animal Interviews. July and August storytimes will feature eco themes such as ocean, gardens, and bees. We will use recycled materials in our craft projects.
Our 2010 Summer Reading Program has three levels: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Each level is achieved by reading 3 hours (or 12 picture books for young children). Picture books can be read to a child or baby as well.
Sharkey’s Cantina has generously donated 250 green lanyards with the library’s name on them. One of these library card lanyards will be given to each child who reaches the first level in the summer reading program.
The Black Dog KIDS once again agreed to donate money to the World Wildlife Fund when our combined reading hours total 900. The donation will be used to adopt an endangered sea turtle as part of our charity-based program. Last year we adopted a polar bear.
