Summer Reading Program Is a Dream

Activities Every Thursday at Royalton Hartland Community Library

Not only will the Summer Reading Program at the Royalton Hartland Community Library offer your children some fun things to do and see this summer, but they will learn a lot too.

This summer’s theme is “A Summer Night’s Dream” and every Thursday will bring the wonders of the natural world into focus with activities for elementary aged children and story hours for the pre-schoolers with reading selections to feed the imagination and pique curiosity. All programs take place at the library, 9 Vernon Street in Middleport.

Program Fun and Activities for Children Grades K-4

Since dreams happen at night, the first program on July 5 at 7 p.m. is Creatures of the Night, and the topic is simply batty! July 12 will feature a Pajamarama with Wendy Jones at 7 p.m. The dreaming continues with Wondermakers on July 19 at 2 p.m. and Charlie and Checkers, an entertaining duo that will make you smile, on July 26 at 2 p.m.

Professor Klutzo will begin the August schedule with his zany science activities at 2 p.m. on August 2, setting the stage for the ups and downs of gravity on August 9 at 7 p.m. when juggling is our topic with Gravitational Bull. And since a campfire should be a part of everyone’s summertime, the Summer Program ends on August 16 at 7 p.m. with Rick Merritt’s Traveling Campfire.

Story Hours For Ages 2-6

All Summer Story Hours for children 2-6 years of age will be offered weekly beginning on Thursday, July 5 through Thursday, August 9 at 11:30 a.m. The program kicks off on July 5 with Follow Your Dreams that features story selections that encourage children to explore what they would like to be when they grow up. Future programs include Sweet Dreams on July 12, Creatures of the Night on July 19, Fantasy Fun and Fairy Tales on July 26. Tall Tales will be told August 2, followed by Shivery Tales of Ghosts, Goblins and Monsters on August 9.

These programs, funded by a Grigg-Lewis Grant and sponsored by the NIOGA Library System, promise to be fun as well as educational, and children and families are encouraged to attend.
