Children’s Summer Reading 2017!

AnBuild a Better World 1 exciting summer of reading is in store for children at the Goodnow Library!  All kids from birth through rising 5th graders are invited to participate in the library’s summer reading program. One of the most effective ways to improve reading skills is to read regularly and often, and research has shown the benefits of greater academic achievement! Starting new this year, grown-ups can join in the fun! Adults can find more information about summer reading at the circulation or reference desks and and teens (rising 6th through rising 9th graders), can find out more about summer reading in the teen room or by clicking HERE. Robert, Teen Librarian Extraordinaire, is offering programs to keep teens busy all summer. Check out details on the Teen Calendar.

Summer Reading for ALL AGES begins Tuesday, June 20th!


Build a Better World 2

This summer the Goodnow Library will have fun programs and activities to get children excited about reading. Starting on Monday, June 20th, stop by the children’s room to sign up and receive your summer reading materials: reading log, reading challenge, bookmark, sticker and temporary tattoo! When a child signs up, they will receive a necklace and keychain that will be decorated with different beads based on how many minutes a child reads. Beads get cooler the more you read – earn sparkly, sport, or even glow-in-the-dark beads! Children who finish an entire reading log will not only get to keep their necklace or keychain, but they will also get to pick a prize from our prize box. In addition, each child who participates in this year’s program will be invited to our Reading Champions Celebration with FREE ICE CREAM!

 Goodnow Library Children’s Room is offering a variety of programs this summer! To see details about our Summer Programs, check out the Children’s Calendar!
