This summer, Dream Big: Read!
This summer, Greenwich Library encourages children to "Dream Big - Read." Children are invited to read books that will spark their imaginations, carry them to other places, times and worlds, and explore endless possibilities.
The Summer Reading Program is part of Greenwich Library's commitment to promote the love of reading and to encourage children and their families to continue reading during the summer break and have fun doing so. Studies show that children who read or are read to during the summer are better prepared for school in the fall. Children who are already reading increase their skills, reading fluency and comprehension; those who are just starting to read do not lose the early achievements they have made during the school year.
"Dream Big - Read" will be explored through a variety of programs, including a classic fairy tale puppet show, storytelling, interactive science programs and a finale filled with the wonders of magic. Check the Children's Room calendar for story times, drop-in crafts, book clubs and special Stories in the Park at Bruce Park Gazebo. All children who are reading independently are welcome to join the Summer Reading Program. Toddlers and children who are not yet reading have their own Read-To-Me Club.
Registration for the Summer Reading Program will begin on Monday, June 18. This year children can register in person or online at www.greenwichlibrary.org/children. Using the new Summer Reader online program, children and their parents can track reading progress, find out about special events and win prizes for reading. This online feature makes it easy to keep up with summer reading wherever you are. Children can also participate by playing our traditional reading game. Children may register and join the program at any time during the summer.
