Skidompha Summer Reading Program Sign-Ups Begin June 23!
 
Skidompha Library will kick-off the ever popular Summer Reading Program on Friday, June 23!  
 
The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program is “Build a Better World!” Participants will explore ways to make the world a better place through themes such as art, building, and electronics. Participants are encouraged to read throughout the summer and take part in our weekly hands-on programs. 
 
How does it work?
Participants keep track of time spent reading, and for every five hours read, they choose either a prize that they may keep for themselves, OR a donation that will be made to CHiP: the Community Housing Improvement Project. Budding philanthropists can label donated items with their name in honor of their reading accomplishments.  
 
Tell me about programs!
Program highlights this year include:  
Chewonki Biomimicry Program, Robopots, a Lego Water Park, Paper Murals, Giant Cardboard Castles, and several “story walks” both in town and around the Skidompha Campus all summer long. 
 
Also new this year are a number of Teen Programs such as Cyanotype Printing, creation of a Vertical Garden, Wearable Tech, Body Marbling, a Photo Story Challenge, and an Arduino Orchestra. 
Who can participate?
The Skidompha Library Summer Reading Program is free and open to the public whether or not you are a library member, and is designed for kids up to 12.
