FIZZ, BOOM, READ!

It’s almost that time of year again… Summer! Which means that our library Youth departments are busy planning our Summer Reading Club programs. We are very excited about this year’s theme, FIZZ, BOOM, READ! Activities for kids at our local CCLD branches, include: Science Experiments (have you ever made elephant toothpaste?), Exploration of Space, Visits from the Science and Discovery Center, Fun with the 5 senses, Puppet and Dinosaur shows, and so much more.  Best of all, our programs are completely FREE! Sign ups start June 30, either online at www.ccld.lib.ny.us or stop in at your local branch. Once you sign up and start reading, remember to stop in weekly at your local branch for prizes and the club event of the week. All readers who enter the club and report their progress either online or at the library, will be invited to an end of Summer Reading Club party at Eldridge Park, sponsored by the Friends of CCLD. Parents, remember this is a great way to get your child to keep reading over the summer months, and avoid the “summer slump” or loss of reading skills. For the tweens (9-13 years) out there, we will be offering a six week theatre camp, on Wednesday evenings starting July 2 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Registration is required for this program, please call 733-9174 to sign up. There will also be separate reading programs and plenty of events for teens and adults. Here are some great recommendations for science-y reading fun for kids, available through our CCLD libraries:

Boy and Bot by Ame Dyckman and Dan Yaccarino

Citizen Scientist: Be a Part of Scientific Discovery in your own Backyard by Lorie Griffin Burns and Ellen Harasimowicz

Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss

Crazy Concoctions: A Mad Scientist’s Guide to Messy Mixtures by Jordan D. Brown and Anthony Owlsley
