Summer Is Here

It's that season for everyone to join a Reading Program!  Both libraries will be offering opportunities for just that beginning the week of June 23.

Adults (at both library locations): Adult Summer Reading is as easy as "1-2-3": read a book, fill in a short form and drop the entry in a bucket – at either library. Each week two names are pulled, one at each library, for a gift card or certificate to a local business. This program is offered by the Friends of the Shelton Libraries, there is no cost to enter – look for gift cards from Stockbridge's, Written Words, Wells Hollow Creamery, Liquid Lunch, Jones Winery. Who wouldn't enjoy a summer treat from one of Shelton's local businesses? Pick up some entry forms – the program continues through July and August and the last weekly drawing is Monday, August 18. The mini reviews are posted each week, so look for some new authors you might enjoy discovering.

Teens (entering grades 7-12): Huntington Branch Library's theme for you is "Book a Trip".  Travel the world, space, and time through books.  Weekly contests, incentives, and a party at the end. Plumb Memorial Library will also have an active summer planned for you. Check back soon for more information!

Kids (age 3 Preschoolers through entering grade 6): Huntingon Branch Library's theme is "Have Books, Will Travel". We will again weigh anything you have read and we hope you'll have fun journeying to different places through reading and attending our special summer programs. Plumb Memorial Library's theme is "Fizz, Boom, Read!" Children from pre-K to Grade 6 read books and report on them over the summer; 8 reports is the goal for prizes at the party in August.  Reporting begins on June 30. Every 2 books completed qualifies for a different reward, plus there are weekly drawings for prizes just for borrowing materials.
