?Dig into Crafts? wraps up children’s summer library programs
T. B. Scott Free Library’s “Dig into Reading” summer reading program and events for children wrap up this week. On Wednesday, July 31, children are invited to “Dig into Crafts” from 1- 2 p.m. inside and outside the library. Hands-on activities will include making a pom pom hedgehog, a paper tube mummy, a groundhog paper bag puppet and much more. Teen volunteers will assist children at this free event, sponsored by The Friends of the Library.
July 31 will also be the last day for children to return completed reading cards to spin the prize wheel. Many new books and audiobooks have been added to the youth services collections this summer to help keep children engaged in reading and listening to quality books. Parents are encouraged to keep kids reading and learning through the rest of summer vacation. As little as 15 minutes per day will make a difference in keeping up reading skills to be ready to return to school in the fall.
The final Lunch Bunch for grades 3 to 5 will be on Tuesday, July 30, noon to 1:15 p.m., in the community room with stories, age-appropriate activities and crafts.
The teen “Beneath the Surface” reading program for grades 6 to 12 continues until Aug. 23. Teens are encouraged to visit the library Teen Zone and take the Underground Trivia challenge for fun and for a chance to win prizes.
All participants in the teen and children’s reading programs have received a pack of coupons and passes for local and state locations. Parents, please note the expiration dates so your children won’t miss the free fun and enrichment those passes can provide. The Wisconsin Woodchucks baseball game ticket voucher must be used July 30 or Aug. 1. Also note that the State Park Passes include one day entries for the entire family along with the individual who was awarded the passes.
