Summer Reading Begins!

We are excited to be kicking off our free Summer Reading Program. Led by children’s librarian Janice Scali and Marlene Parmentier, MC Smith Intermediate teacher, our Summer Reading Program for kids includes book readings and stories, lessons on a variety of topics, arts and crafts projects and fun physical activities for kids! There will also be guests reading with the children and making special presentations throughout the summer.

The Summer Reading Program will run from July 5 through August 11, meeting daily Tuesday through Friday from 10am-noon. Recommended for pre-k to elementary school aged children. All ages are welcome.

We will also be bringing the Summer Reading Program for kids to Greenport Town Park this summer. Library staff will visit with children Monday mornings during the Greenport Summer Recreation Program. The Park’s Summer Recreation Program runs for six-weeks from July 5 through August 12, Monday-Friday from 8AM – 2PM. Registration is required. Visit http://greenport.yourtownhub.com/4602-2/ for more info.

Library members are also invited to log their reading this summer. Let’s see how many books we can read as a community! Each time you read a book this summer, submit your book info via our online Summer Reading Book Log or pick up a paper book log at the library, the Greenport Town Park Little Free Library or the Greenport Town Hall Little Free Library. Happy Summer Reading!

  1. It’s too bad there isn’t an evening version of the summer reading program for working parents

    • Hi Melonie! We actually do have children’s activities evenings when we are open. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5pm-8pm our children’s staff are here to read with the children and engage them in crafts and activities. We also have Saturday programming for children and families. We hope to see you and your family here this summer!
