Summer Reading In The Children’s Department

Summer Reading in the Children’s Department

We are up to our gills with excitement looking forward to Summer Reading 2022, Oceans of Possibilities! Our department will be transformed into an under the sea experience. Summer reading is a chance to make waves & crafts, explore new waters, go back in time, get spooked or frightened in the deep; it is a chance to FIND YOURSELF, even if you are not looking! We are ready to take a break from school’s “otter-nonsense” and read whatever floats our boat. Come take a bite out of a good book, it’s a fish eat fish world. Children can be “sofishticated”, crabby, bubbly, shy like an eel, puffy like a puffer fish, blend in like a camouflaged octopus, or stand out like a gorgeous lionfish! It is a chance to discover! So don’t get “tide” down this summer! Come check out Oceans Of Possibilities! If you can think of a better fish pun, let “minnow”!
