Our Summer Reading program will begin June 18, 2019!
This year we will explore a “Universe of Stories” with a variety of fun programs for kids ages 3 – entering 5th Grade.
Our popular “Read and Bead” program will return as well.
Starting June 18th, come in between 10 AM and 7 PM to register and get your log. Can’t come the first day? No problem. Come any Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 10 AM and 7 PM or Thursday and Friday between 10 AM and 4 PM. You can’t start counting minutes until you register and get your log.
How does it work? You read at home and circle the time you spend reading each day on your reading log. Children not reading on their own may count the time they are read to by someone else. Earn a bead for every 15 minutes you read, up to 60 minutes a day. Collect the beads on your necklace. Earn a brag tag when you have completed the first 120 minutes of reading. You can trade your beads for glitter, metallic, and different shaped beads. Make your own unique necklace!
The program ends August 16th at 4 PM. However, you have until August 31st to collect your final beads.
Children attending Dracut elementary schools will be rewarded with an ice cream party at their school in September if they read for at least 2 hours each week.
