On Your Mark, Get Set...READ! This year the theme of our summer reading program encourages children to read and to keep active. Sports will play center stage in our events, and kids will have the opportunity to learn how to play lacrosse, flag football, frisbee, and volleyball. There will be a basketball trick demo, and yoga, too!
In addition to the sports activities we'll also have a puppet show, balloon twisting, family trivia, LEGO fun, and a Museum of Science rocket program!
It all begins today at 1:00 pm with sign-ups for reading. Raffles, crafts, and edible treats will be part of the fun. The Friends of the Library of Windham FLOW, is sponsoring a high-energy juggling act by Jason Tardy at 2:15 pm.
Here's a sampling of Jason's skills:
The summer kick-off party is for children of all ages. And, if you can't make it to today's party, reader registration will continue throughout the summer.
