Children’s 2014 Summer Reading Programs End

Our Children’s 2014 Summer Reading Programs come to an official close this Saturday, July 26. We had lots of fun this year learning about the science behind rockets, robots, animals, earthquakes, and oil, among other things.

On Friday, July 25 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, all Summer Reading Program participants are invited to celebrate the end of Summer Reading at a Mad Scientist Party. Enjoy an afternoon of fun science games, crafts, and snacks. Children will also receive their certificates of completion.

Also, be sure to stop by the library and check out the robots built by our Children’s Summer Reading Program participants! Children were encouraged to build robots of metal, cardboard, tin cans, containers, boxes, etc., (they didn’t have to be functioning robots). Judging for the Robot Building Contest will take place on Saturday, July 26 at 10:00 AM, and prizes will be awarded.

A special thank you goes out to all the children, families, and volunteers who helped make this year’s program a success. Just look at these smiling faces from June’s Remarkable Robots demonstration with Laura Jones!
