It's Summer Reading Time at Whiting Library

posted Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Summer has arrived in Vermont and with the sunshine and long days come many fun activities at Whiting Library. The theme for the 2022 Summer Reading Program is "Oceans of Possibilities". Kids of all ages can sign up to participate and record their reading progress and enter to win raffle tickets for great prizes! Summer reading is critical, not only for helping kids maintain learning while school is out, but also for fostering social-emotional development, discovering the joy of stories, and elevating the importance of lifelong learning. Summer reading is fun at Whiting Library, with a variety of reading challenge options for kids to choose from, and weekly Story Time at 11am on Fridays to read and play together. All kids who sign up will also receive a free book of their choice from the library book sale room!

The Nature Museum will once again offer a series of incredible nature programs in the library backyard this summer. On seven consecutive Wednesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m, starting June 22nd, an environmental educator from The Nature Museum will introduce children of all ages to the wonders of the natural world through demonstrations, games, and crafts. This year there will be programs on beavers, bats, black bears, owls, pollinators, animal migration, and, of course, building fairy houses! Geared toward ages pre-k through elementary grades, all ages are welcome. Programs will be 45 minutes long with dedicated time for a story reading and anynature-related questions you may have for the expert educators. No registration is necessary. Programs will be outdoors with lots of space for everyone, and inside during inclement weather. Join us to unplug, discover, and learn!
