Children can register on Wandoo Reader, an online reading log to keep track of their reading anywhere they go as long as they have an internet connection. By reading, logging, and completing challenges, kids will be eligible for benchmark prizes throughout the summer. The Read S'More! program stimulates kids' imaginations with wonderful stories and fun activities while focusing on nature and the great outdoors. Drop-in story times, drop-in activities, large-group enrichment and entertainment programs and animal visits are just some of the events planned through August 16. Think of us as your free stay-at-home summer camp experience.
The summer reading program is supported by Kim and Mike Healy, with STEAM programs made possible by the Amadeo Family. Additional reading prizes are sponsored by the following local area businesses: Beardsley Zoo, Sky Zone, Subway and Toy Chest. The reading portion of the program runs from June 17 - August 30. Call for details 203-762-6336.
