The Youth Summer Reading Program is in full swing with a full slate of activities going on each week. If you haven’t signed your child up yet, there’s still plenty of time to do so. The “Dig into Reading Club” is for kids birth through fifth grade. The “Beneath the Surface Teen Readers Club” is geared for youth entering sixth grade up to age 20. In both clubs, kids earn prizes for every five hours of reading they complete. Every time they attend a Summer Reading Program event they earn one hour of extra reading credit, plus a chance to win door prizes. Bring the kids in and sign up!
A big “thank you” goes to Kris Stump for putting on the kid’s music show Wednesday, June 12. When the scheduled performer canceled at the last minute due to illness, Kris jumped in and entertained the kids with lively music, musical games and stories, dancing and instruments. Kris teaches music at the Syracuse Elementary School, and her daughters, Laura and Abby Stump, helped their mom out at the show. The kids had lots of fun experiencing the music and expending some youthful energy.
Next week, actor Terry Lynch will entertain the kids with pirate stories from around the world as he portrays Captain Taffy in “Adventures on the High Seas” beginning at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 26. Kids, bring your reading passports to get stamped. If they attend five Summer Reading Program events, they earn a prize.
