Children's Summer Reading Club 2015 ~ Every Hero Has a Story

The Children’s Summer Reading Club for children preschool through grade six will begin on June 17 and run through August 13.

Superhero GirlChildren who participate in the Summer Reading Club will transform into the hero known as "SUPER READER!" The more they read, the more their powers grow. Young heroes are encouraged to read, or be read aloud to, for at least 20 minutes every day. Super Readers know that practice makes perfect.

The Club, for preschoolers through sixth graders, offers many activities including the Superhero Training Camp, Superhero Science, the Kryptonite Challenge and Web Master. Also planned are summer favorites: Books & Bricks, Cook Up a Story, Kids' Crafts, Live Clue, the Theater Workshop and Nutmeg book discussions.

Children under the age of five may participate in the "LITTLE HEROES" read-aloud club. Weekly programs include Rain-or-Shine Storytime and Bedtime Stories. Preschoolers may also register for Super Power Science, Super Yoga and their very own Superhero Training Camp.

The reading programs will be offered online through the Welles-Turner website. Registration opens on June 12, and children will begin to record their reading on June 17.

Every hero has a story. Come find your favorite this summer!
