Fizz, Boom, READ!

Things are ramping up at the Gerard H. Van Hoof Library as we prepare for an exciting summer of reading, programs, learning, and fun!

The library's 2014 Summer Reading Program has something for everyone with programs for ages 3 through adult, so be sure to sign up the entire family to read, learn, and play together this summer. Registration begins right after Memorial Day on Tuesday, May 27th. Sign up at the library and pick up your reading record to get started.

Science-related themes will guide the programs we have developed this summer:

  • "Fizz, Boom, READ!" for kids ages 3 through those entering grade 5
  • "Spark a Reaction" for teens entering grades 6 through 12
  • "Literary Elements" for adults
More information about the programs is available on the library's website, and a full list of scheduled events is included on our online calendar. From weird science to snakes to movie matinees, bubbles, bingo, animation and more, we have something for all interests and ages.

We put a lot of effort into the Summer Reading Program each year, because our mission is to inspire and support lifelong learning and the love of reading. This becomes especially important in the summer, as we hope to help families avoid "summer learning loss."

Help stop summer learning loss, sign up for the library's reading program, and enjoy the fun events we have scheduled for you. We look forward to seeing you at the library!
