Youth Summer Reading Program

Our 2020 Summer Reading Program is going virtual!

Beginning June 1st

Programs

This year, all of our programming will shift from in-person experiences to at-home experiences. When you register your child for one of these programs, they will be registered to be a part of that program for all 8 weeks. Each Monday, a take-home packet will be available for you to pick up, filled with all the essentials you will need for that project. You will also receive an email with a video component for that program. Virtual programs will begin June 1st. The final week of programming will be July 20th. Take-home packets are limited, please register below.

  • Story Time with Miss Emily

For kids ages 5 and under, this program will include a video of a story time with Miss Emily, accompanied by a take-home packet with an activity that goes along with the story. Most of our story times will be fairy tale themed, including: The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, and Jack and the Beanstalk.

  • Science Club with Miss Milkyway

For kids ages 5 to 12, this program will include a video of Miss Milkyway (of Wimberley Science Club) demonstrating a science experiment, accompanied by a packet with all the necessary supplies to complete the science experiment at home. Some of the science topics include: Ancient Egypt, Dinosaurs, and Robots and Simple Machines.

  • Art Club with Miss Ann

For kids ages 5 to 12, this program will include a video of Ann Steine (of Growing Hearts: Art and Bodywork) demonstrating an art project, accompanied by a packet with all the necessary supplies to complete the art project at home.

Incentive Reading Program

Instead of paper reading logs, this year we will be using the online software tool, Wandoo, to track our little patrons’ reading. Research shows that children who read at least six books during the summer maintain or even improve their reading skills. We want to reward children for keeping up with their reading over the summer by giving out prizes for reading books. Kids 12 and under can track their reading on Wandoo and will be able to pick up their prizes at the end of the summer. Our reading incentive program will begin June 1st and go through August 1st.
