Summer Reading Program – Kids 5 to 12

July 27 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until July 31, 2020

We invite you to join us for this year’s summer reading program, “Imagine Your Story.” We have a fun-filled summer ahead with lots of exciting books to read and special virtual library events. Don’t miss our virtual kick-off event with Jester Jim on Wednesday, July 8 at 2:00 pm LIVE on YouTube.

The summer reading program will look different this year as our physical spaces are not available due to ongoing construction and COVID-19. Unfortunately, we will not be hosting any large group events at the library this summer.

Reading, however, can be done any time and any place! And after a season of online learning for many of you Wadsworth Library wants to prioritize a summer of reading for pleasure and fun family activities. To meet this goal and to adapt to our limited space we have simplified our summer program. Each age bracket (preschoolers, kids, and teens) has a separate online folder providing instructions, event information, Facebook challenges, and weekly BINGO sheets. Each week a new BINGO sheet will be made available and participants can work through them at their own pace. Each completed BINGO sheet earns a free prize book from the library. Participants may earn up to four free books throughout the month of July!
