summer reading program 2016

Join us for the annual Children’s

Summer Reading program.

North Brookfield—Haston Public Library’s summer reading program, “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!”, begins on Tues., July 5 and runs through Sat., August 13.  The program is open to children from pre-school age through 6th grade.

Children will receive reading logs, bookmarks and certificates of achievement, as well as weekly prizes when reading levels are achieved.  Special prizes, including two tickets to the “Big E” in Springfield, Sept. 16-Oct. 2, will be awarded by drawing from a pool of names of children who read at least one book during the Summer Reading Program.


Crafts, Legos, Board Games

A highlight of the program will be a performance by two-time Parents’ Choice Award-winning recording artist, Roger Tincknell, who will perform for the children on Wed., July 27, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.

Other highlights of the summer include two programs for the pre-school set.

On Wed., August 10, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Jessica Garneau of the Coordinated Family and Community Engagement grant program will present “Kindergarten, Here I Come!” for children who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall.  Stories, music and movement games will celebrate the “big first day” for these budding students.

On Tues., August 16, from 10:00-11:00 a.m. Jessica will bring the very popular “Read, Play, Build” program to the library.  This program is meant for 2-5 year-olds and includes a story time on the theme of construction, followed by time for the children to build their own structures, using their imaginations and many types of materials.
