Boulder Public Library Kids' Summer Reading Program Begins May 31

The Library encourages youth, adults, and families to participate in its Summer Reading program from June 1 to September 15, 2017.

Library branches across the city will feature different activity stations for children with the theme 'Building a Better World'. Readers track 800 minutes of reading. Reading time can be turned in beginning May 26.

The Gary Byker Memorial Library, 3338 Van Buren Hudsonville, will kick off its summer reading club for children and teens on June 12. Students attending summer school are invited to attend when they've finished.

"We have several programs geared towards changing our bad habits, such as recycling, properly handling bees, and gardening", Tone said. There are early literacy activities for very young children including babies and toddlers who are not yet reading to enjoy with their caregivers. The last day to sign up is July 12, and the program ends August 4.

This year, Summer Reading explores ways to "Build a Better World" through a variety of programs that build community, inspiration and in some cases, help participants build actual things. Fill your summer with reading, maker kits, prizes, movies, pizza and programs! For each level completed participants are also entered in the drawing for grand prizes. Maker kits with themes around history, electricity, fandom, and wearables, will rotate through the Boulder Public libraries. Adults can join the "Annual Reading Club for Perennial Readers", sponsored by Gemmen's Hardware. Programs for children ages 3-6 will be held from 10-11 a.m. Programs for children ages 7-11 will be held from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Magic, music, movement, and more awaits!
