Tails and Tales Summer Reading Program July and August 2021

Readers who complete 500 minutes of reading over the summer will be rewarded with an ice cream cone certificate from Giffords Ice Cream. Tales and Tails pencils, stickers and reading logs will be provided to track reading time.  Sign up begins June 23. Rewards will be given after completing the goal, which is 15 minutes of reading for 33 days! Readers may choose from their own books as well as the library books and listening to someone read to you counts!

Outdoor Story times with Make and Take, or Take and Make simple crafts will be provided weekly through July on Wednesdays at 4:00 pm beginning July 7. Story times will be cancelled on rainy days, but Take and Makes will still be available during any library hours that week to pick up and do at home.

Please sign up if you plan to attend the weekly story times, and also whether you prefer to just pick up the weekly craft.  This will help us with creating our outdoor space as well as knowing the number of Make and Take packages to have ready.  Plans may change over the summer as CDC guidelines continue to change.

You can come to the library, call or email to sign up for Reading, for the Take and Make Crafts, and for attendance at the Story times.

Make and Takes will include:

Clothes Pin Whale Eating Fish

Scratch Art and Solargraphic

  Bird Beak Game and paper bird craft

Balloon Rocket and Librarian’s Choice!
