Happy Reading!



Weston Summer Reading, Week Three!

This week, our science theme for the reading program is Oceanography.  (Even if I do keep wanting to type Oceanology, because of the Ology series of books.)  Here’s what’s going on this week at the Library:

14 This week 3

Mousetrap Science is with Jungle Jim, who did two GREAT programs last year–Jedi Jim and Hogwart’s Academy.  It’s for ages four and up, and it promises  to be a fun time for all!  If you know who Rube Goldberg is, think of his version of a mousetrap.  If you don’t…google him and figure out how much fun it can be!

Jeannie Mack is our favorite performer for toddlers, and she’ll be here on Thursday morning.  If you have a preschooler who likes to sing and dance, you should definitely join us!

And stop in anytime, opening until 30 minutes before closing, to make a Jiggling Jellyfish!

Here are the details of the programs this week:

If you’ve read anything great, let us know what’s your favorite book so far this summer!  I’m currently enjoying The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing, by Sheila Turnage. It’s the sequel to Three Times Lucky, another summer favorite.




Fizz! Boom! Read! Week Two Newsletter…Chemistry!

How’s your reading going?  We have some kids who have already read 15 books so far!

If you’re looking for something different, try one of the books in this week’s newsletter, featuring kids experimenting with magical chemistry sets, creating their own Frankenstein monsters, and having fun through other kinds of chemical mischief.  Or, if we have a rainy day (or a really hot one) you could try the recipe and craft.
