Children's Summer Reading
The Summer Reading Program for children ages 4-11 is a seven week series of fun and FREE virtual activities that revolve around reading and a chosen theme. This summer's theme is "Imagine Your Story" and our focus will be on Folk and Fairy Tales.
We will begin the summer with a virtual kick-off party on Friday, June 26th at 3 pm with David Engel's Wizard Academy. Please register for this event here:
Starting July 1st, caregivers may call the Children's Room (845)358-3370 x228 to reserve their child's Summer Reading To-Go Kit. Inside the kit will be everything your child will need to participate in the program from home, including a reading log, stickers, instructions and small prizes that should be handed out as they reach their reading goals. Reserved kits may be safely picked up after July 1st at the Library's Curbside Pick Up Station
Children will record the time they spend reading over the summer months (with a goal of 2-hours per week or 20-minutes per day). All Summer Reading Program participants will also have the opportunity to attend special virtual events throughout the summer! Registration for these events will happen through our Events Calendar here on our website starting June 15th. Lastly, all children who complete their reading logs will have the opportunity to enter a grand prize raffle for one of three amazing prizes! Photos of completed reading logs may be emailed to email@example.com . The winning entries will be pulled at our virtual closing ceremony on Friday, August 14th at 4:00 pm.

We are checking that phone number daily, so please leave a message with a return phone number, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We understand that this is an unusual situation and that our program may look a little different this summer. Please bear with us as we navigate this new virtual world! Our goal remains the same- to keep your children reading and safely having fun over the summer months!
