On Your Mark_EL purple01The Summer Reading Club for kids will kick off the week of June 27th with the theme, “On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!”.  Activities for kids at our local CCLD branches, include:  Puppet, Magic and Outdoor Game Days, as well as CCC’s Planetarium, Science Tellers and a performance of “The Tortoise and the Hare” by the Merry-Go-Round Theatre. There’s so much more, and best of all…completely FREE! Signups start June 27th, 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 and report their progress online or let us know, will be invited to an ending 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 avoiding the “summer slump” or loss of reading skills. For the tweens (8-13 years) out there, we will be offering a Theatre Camp and a Maker Camp, stay tuned to our website for more details on these!
