Summer is right around the corner and once again the Crandon Public Library is gearing up to provide a fun and exciting Summer Reading Program to our entire community. We believe the library is the perfect place for children and families to become empowered to build a better world!
This year’s summer reading theme, “Build a Better World” will have kids dreaming about everything from constructing skyscrapers to protecting the environment to building friendships across cultures. Through books, games and many STEAM (science technology, engineering, art and math) activities, kids and families will discover new ways of looking at the world around them. Each week will be packed with fun adventures such as story times, drop-in craft afternoons, evening programs and our popular book/community bingo.
The importance of a public library summer reading programs is essential to helping students become better readers, writers, and spellers. Education experts agree that children who don’t read over the summer don’t “catch up” in fall because the other children are moving ahead with their skills. By the end of 6th grade children who lose reading skills over the summer are two years behind their classmates.
Because of our library’s limited budget, we are asking community members to please consider making a donation to the Crandon Public Library’s 2017 Summer Reading Program. Funds will be used for the promotion of events, performer fees, supplies and prizes. In return, community members, businesses and/or organizations that support our summer reading program will be highlighted in our summer programming brochure, on our website, our Facebook page and in our newspaper columns.
This year we are excited to announce that we now accept online donations (below) or please feel free to mail or drop off a check. Donors will receive a “Proud Supporter” poster as well as a non-profit receipt. We encourage you to proudly display your financial support of the Crandon Public Library.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Library Director Michelle Gobert.
