Here we are halfway through summer reading 2017. We have 269 young people signed up from ages less than 1 to 17. We’ve already given away more that 200 prizes and had 8 enterprising young readers who have finished all five levels!
We’ve also done lots of fun activities:
We learned traditional Czech and Slovak dances from the Domácí Czech Folk Dancers.
We painted with marbles.
We met Harper, a service dog in training.
We made robots out of boxes and tinfoil.
We learned about all kinds of reptiles…
…and made friends with a boa constrictor.
We built marble mazes out of cardboard and drinking straws.
And that’s only the first half. We’ve got lots more to come.
