Summer 2013

Get “diggy” with gardening, worms, dinosaurs, pirates, and more summer fun!
Program begins June 26 and ends August 2

Tales for Tails … This year we will be working with P.A.W.S. Cat & Kitten Rescue located in Woodstock, CT to help animals in our community. For each book you read this summer, you can come into the library and place a marker on our big bulletin board. Don’t forget; when someone reads to you or you read to someone that book also counts. The books you read will earn food and treats for needy animals.

Keep track of your books on your Dig Into Reading Log or ONLINE
