PLAISTOW —Plaistow Public Library’s six week Summer Reading Program has something for everyone from pre-school to adults. The children’s theme, “Dig Into Reading” will feature a game board for children to advance along and collect prizes as they read. Each week will have a different sub-theme, along with crafts, activities, and special events associated with that week’s theme. The themes are: Week 1: “Just Dig It”, Week 2: “Prehistoric Pastimes”, Week 3: “Buried Treasure”, Week 4: “Underground Fantasy”, Week 5: “Dive Into the Deep Sea”, Week 6: “Earthmoving Madness.” Raffle prizes will also be given after weeks 3 and 6.

The teen program, “Beneath The Surface”, will feature raffle prizes and special programs and activities relating to “Under the Earth”, “Under The Water”, “Subcultures & Steampunk.” We are also featuring the “Dear Teen Me” Book Club for grades 9-12 on alternate Tuesday nights at 6:00 p.m. beginning July 9. Registration is recommended for this book club. This literary selection is required reading for all TRHS students over the summer.

The Summer Reading Kick-off Event features Mike Bent of ‘AbraKIDabra!’ at 6:00 p.m. Come by at 5:00 p.m. for pizza and to register and get more information about this year’s Summer Reading Programs for children, teens, and adults. Mike Bent was named ‘Best of Boston’ by Boston Magazine, won the 2009 Nickelodeon Parents’ Picks Award, and has performed at the White House six times! Registration is required.

The library’s artist of the month for June is Craig O’Neill. Craig works in oils and in pastels, charcoal, pen and ink, woodcuts, and linoleum cuts. He enjoys painting portraits, figures, landscapes, interiors, and combinations of them. He strives to convey a sense of soul of his subjects, the spirit of place for his landscapes, and to make viewing the painting an interactive experience. His recent work focuses on capturing a mood or telling a story in the painting. Come by the library in June to see his newest work. Let us know if you would like to be an artist of the month at the library, or display a collection in our display cases, for a summer month.
