The Importance of Summer Reading
News from the Library
With only a few weeks left in the school year, the last day we will be loaning books is June 2. All books should be returned by June 12. Take some time to look around your home for school library books. You’ll know they belong to the library if they have a spine label that has the call number of the book and a barcode on the back that includes the name of the school and the title of the book.
Summer Reading Program
At Madison Public Library
Ms. Dana Skwirut, the childrens’ librarian at Madison Public Library, came to speak to all of the kids during their lunch periods over the past two weeks. She has a great program planned, beginning with the kickoff celebration, Tuesday, June, 20! Make sure to stop by the library to sign up. This is a great way to keep reading skills from sliding over the summer.
The Summer Reading Kickoff Celebration is, Tuesday, June 20, 2:00 - 4:00PM, 39 Keep Street
Drop in anytime from 2-4pm at this get together to celebrate the start of the Public Library’s 2023 Summer Reading Program! There will be games, crafts, face painting, an opportunity to sign up for the public library’s summer reading club, and more. The first 200 participants receive a tote bag and an extra sweet treat just for signing up!
Then stick around at 4 pm for New Jersey’s Favorite Family Entertainer, Conrad Cologne, who will perform an interactive magic and storytelling program for children and their families! Based on children’s books, stories come to life during the show using magic, interactive storytelling, puppetry, and comedy. The theme of the “Better Together Magic Show”coincides with the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) summer reading theme of “All Together Now”.
The program runs about 45 minutes and is suitable for children 4-12 and their families. This program will take place in the Chase Room. No registration is required, but be sure to arrive early as they will let the audience in on a first come, first served basis.
