Soon it will be time for summer reading fun at NMPL! This summer we invite children from ages 1 – 11 to join us for “FIZZ BOOM READ!” in the NMPL’s Children’s Department starting on June 30.
For little ones ages 1 – 3, we have our new program featuring early learning activities to do with your child. You will receive a log to keep track of your progress. Complete 20 or more of the 27 activities during the 6-week program and come back to the library to get a book for your child.
For our 4 – 11 year olds, at registration you will receive a reading log and a game sheet. Then all you need to do is keep track of what you are reading by writing down the title and number of pages in your log. Beginning on July 7 you can start coming back to play the game. Bring your reading log and game sheet, and for every 32 pages (or one picture book) you have read you will advance one space on the board. There will be prizes at different points in the game. When you have finished the game, you will get a certificate and a book. The game ends August 8, 2014.
And finally, new this year is a chance to participate in the “Bedtime Math Program” (BMP). BMP offers three levels of challenge: Wee Ones (targeted for pre-school kids), Little Kids (kindergarten through 1st or 2nd), and Big Kids (grades 2nd upward). When you sign up, you will get a chart with the information you need to get started. This program is being sponsored by the FRIENDS of New Milford Library. If you complete the BMP by August 22, your child will get a small flashlight as a prize.
