Summer reading with the Jackson Hinds Library System

This year's Summer Reading theme is "Build a Better World", and kids will find plenty of ways to do their part, from reading at home and at the beach, to attending fascinating library programs about science, nature and more to help keep their minds sharp all summer long. This year, they hope to attract more junior-high and high-school readers with programs selected specifically for tweens and teens, including a 'zine workshop, a Tween-Teen coding games day, and Frankentoys (deconstructing stuffed animals).

The Brownsville Public Library wants to invite children to crack open a book and read this summer. There will also be a party.

The annual Teen Summer Challenge at the Fairfield Public Library kicks off with a pizza party on Thursday, June 15, from 2:50-4:45 p.m., downUNDER at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road.

"Summer Reading participants track the minutes they read on their reading logs". They can learn new things through the books we provide. While there, be sure to sign-up for CLP's Summer Reading programs. Mondays will be Movie Mondays at 2 p.m., Tuesdays will be preschool storytime at 10:30 a.m. and Thursdays will be Construction Corners.
