S'mores, Dogs & Books!
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2010 Summer Reading program and thanks to everyone (including grownups) who came to the cookout Weds Aug 25! 12 children and 8 adults came by our cookout & ate hotdogs & chips, drank juice & seltzer, stood around talking & meeting each other & hanging out! It was great! If there aren't enough kids in the photos, it's because they were busy running around shooting each other with squirt guns!
For the "Make a Splash" Summer Reading Program, we had 36 kids sign up & so far 15 have come to claim their prizes and gift certificates. If you read this summer, bring your book log to Kelly on a Monday or Wednesday between 3:30 and 5:30 and get a gift certificate to the Toadstool Bookshop in Keene!
2011: "One World, Many Stories"
Next year we'd like to do even more, so please let us know what you'd like to see more of, less of, ideas, events, etc. I'd like to have an event each month related to the summer reading theme, "One World, Many Stories."
If people want to pre-order t-shirts next year, I'll have sign-ups available earlier in the year. There will still be a raffle for various kids sizes & a tote bag! Maybe more!
There will be more news about next year's summer reading as the time gets closer... meanwhile, keep thinking of fun things to do related to travel, other cultures... or even other WORLDS!
