Join Spalding Memorial Library as they kick off their summer programs. Register for the summer reading program by visiting www.spaldinglibrary.org and clicking on “Reading Programs”, or stop in at the library to pick up a paper reading log. Log the time your child spends reading, completing activities and attending library programs to earn free books and prizes.
Children earn 1 point for each minute they spend reading. Each time they reach 100 points, they earn a free book. When they reach 500 points, they can choose a prize from the treasure chest and print a completion certificate, too.
The program runs from June 1 to Aug. 31, and is open to children and teens from birth to age 18. For more information, call the library at (570) 888-7117 or follow Spalding Memorial Library on Facebook.
On Tuesdays, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Threads group meets. This is a group open to all ages wishing to explore knitting, crocheting, and other crafts. Members usually come with individual projects to work on and share with the group. Advice is often given on different techniques. Those wishing to learn a new skill are welcome to come in for help
Stop in at the library on Wednesday, June 8, for block building. All ages are invited.
On Thursday, June 9 at 10 a.m., Ms. Jess will live stream stories and songs on the Spalding Memorial Library Facebook Page. This week they will read stories about fish.
