ATKINSON —Ready, set …Summer Reading registration is on! Please register for the program as a whole and then for each individual event your child or t/ween wants to attend. Raffle tickets for the t/weens may be submitted now. Recording minutes for prizes for the younger group may be submitted weekly starting July 1. Good luck – we are anticipating lots of winners!

The saga of presenting an activity or two each week for your attention continues. Before we talk about what’s on the horizon, let’s recap a few you don’t want to miss. Please come down on Mon., July 1, at 6:30 p.m. for ‘We DIG Big Trucks’ and also register for Wed., July 3, at 3:00 p.m. (ages 3-8) for ‘We DIG Ice Cream’.

We also ‘DIG’ Potatoes! How about getting to the ‘root’ of this question? Which potato chip do you like best? Take the potato chip test, find out about this surprising invention we love to eat, and, see a bag blaster and how one is made! Come and munch on all the fun at our potato party that is going to take place on Mon., July 8, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Register early to avoid disappointment. This event is for children entering kindergarten through grade 5.

We are going ‘Beneath the Surface’ with the t/weens. In keeping with the tradition of combining teens and tweens for summer book discussion, we will meet on the second Wednesday of both July and August. Registration is required. Books can be picked up at the front desk at least 3-4 weeks before the event.

July: We will be discussing ‘Liar & Spy’ by Rebecca Stead on Wed., July 10, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Who are you ‘beneath the surface?’ is a question this book asks and answers. We will also be playing two truths and a lie following our discussion. As usual, candy and good fun will be on the menu.
