LINDEN – The Linden Free Public Library is getting ready for summer with a schedule full of children’s programs.
Registration for the Summer Reading Club starts on May 20. Sign up in the Children’s Room at the library. Then, all you have to do is read books, and win prizes. The theme for this year’s Club is “Dig Into Reading.” So, featured books will feature stories about things found underground: dinosaurs, mummies, pirate treasure, gems, and plants.
For five weeks, the library will also have weekly small groups for children who live in Linden. The Primary Group is for four and five year-olds, and The Elementary Group is for six and seven year-olds. In these groups, the librarian will read books aloud, and then the children will do a craft about underground objects.
For children from ages eight through ten years, the library will have a group called The Egyptian Book Group. In this group, participants will all get copies of the book, “Mummies in the Morning,” from the Magic Tree House series. They will read chapters, and each week, they will do a craft about Egypt, such as an Egyptian mobile; and a name tag where your name is written in hieroglyphs.
The library will have two children’s music concerts to open and close the summer club. Registration is required for the music concerts, and this begins on May 6.
The library’s toddler program, “The Terrific Toddlers,” will continue to meet on Monday and Tuesday mornings. A parent or guardian must come in person to register each child (the child does not have to be present). These programs are intended for children who are at home for the summer, not organized groups, such as camps, pre-schools, or day-care groups.
