      Join us at the Library for a great summer of STEM and Fun.  The Summer Reading Program begins June 15th!

      The Summer Reading Program includes hands-on learning, singing, crafts, STEM learning activities, reading and more. 

      On Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1:00 p.m. over six weeks there will be 18 virtual events that include, “Learning About the Weather”, “Get Ready to Race Into Space”, “Animals”, “Adventure Around the World”, “Exploring Nature Together” and “A Week of STEM”. Participants will receive a packet with the items needed to do the activities each week.  If you are unable to attend a virtual event, activities and videos will be provided on the Summer Reading Program blog page.

      IDB Read Kids will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m., join us as our guest narrator Bob White reads Bunnicula and Howliday Inn by James Howe.

      You can also use Beanstack to track your reading throughout the summer.  Our Beanstack site includes educational activities like; cool sounds, exciting activities, exploration and learning.  It also allows you to log your minutes and activities in a quick and easy way using the Beanstack website.  Earn badges and much more!  If you prefer not to use Beanstack, you can receive a logbook to record the minutes your child will read this summer.
