Summer weather is here and you know what that means: the Summer Reading Program at the Ridgefield Library will begin soon. We will be visiting all the schools in town over the next three weeks, reminding the students to “Dream Big! Read!”, which is the theme this year. Like last summer, readers can track their books using our online software, accessible anywhere you can get on the Internet: home, at the Library, at Grandma’s house, or even on your smart phone. We’ll provide links to the online program on June 21st, the last day of school, so readers can start recording their books right away.
Since the Library is moving forward with our building project, Summer Reading won’t start officially until July 9th but will continue a full 6 weeks, through August 18th. During this time, readers will be able to claim the prizes they have earned at different levels. All the special programs (magic shows, concerts, puppet shows) will take place at the town’s Rec. Center at 7:00 PM. All of the book clubs and storytimes will meet in our current location or temporary quarters after the move. Pick up a calendar in Children’s Services or check our website for details.
Here's to Dreaming Big this summer!
