With school ending for most area schools this week, we look forward to seeing, reading and playing with even more of our friends than usual. With that in mind, here are some upcoming events to make the first few days off the start of a great summer vacation!
Wednesday, June 20, marks the start of "DREAM BIG," our summer reading program. Sign up at the library or on our website at www.mansfieldpubliclibraryct.org and let us know what you're reading throughout the summer. It is open to ALL AGES again this year. Kids may pick a weekly prize, teens will be entered into a weekly drawing, and adults will have a drawing for some great prizes at the end of the summer. The program runs through August 17th.
Join us for Wonderful Wednesday on June 20th at 10:30 AM for a fun morning. We'll read stories, sing songs and enjoy activities. All ages are welcome with a parent or caregiver.
On Friday, June 22, at 10:30 AM, those of you with children 36 months old and younger can join us in the Buchanan Auditorium for Toddler Time. There are lots of toys, books and chances for social interaction in this fun playgroup designed for children under three. They can play with riding toys, a play kitchen, a toy tool bench, puzzles, an activity table and more!
That evening, also on Friday, June 22, from 6:00 - 7:30 PM, join us for our very first Family Pajama Party! All ages are welcome to join us after hours at the library. Wear your favorite PJs, put on your best bunny slippers and enjoy a variety of after-hours crafts and activities. We'll finish up with a cozy read-aloud, and send you home with a bedtime snack.
And, of course, what would a Saturday morning be without our Family Story Time on June 23rd at 10:30 AM? This is a fun way to start off your weekend with stories, songs, finger plays and crafts for young children and their families to enjoy together. Stories last for about 1/2 hour, then we move on to a craft activity for all to enjoy and take home.
Join us for any (or all!) of these activities, and keep your eyes on Patch for even more summer fun coming up in the weeks to come!
