The Attleboro Public Library is getting ready to launch its annual summer reading program. This year’s festivities include programs and activities for ages 3 years-adult! As part of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), the APL shares the same summer reading themes, artwork, and incentives with 48 other states. The 2015 theme encourages readers to celebrate the everyday heroes around us while tapping into their own inner hero.
“Every Hero has a Story” is the theme for kids ages 3 years-4th grade. For tweens & teens in 5th-12th grade the theme is “Unmask” And for adults the theme is “Escape the Ordinary” Each age group will have plenty of opportunity to explore heroism through stories, performances, workshops and more. There are also weekly opportunities to win prizes!
The full schedule of special performers and weekly activities will be available on the library’s website soon. Sign-ups for the Summer Reading Club begin on Wednesday, June 22. When you sign up, you will receive all of the program and event information for your age group.
Watch for Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Witherall & Mrs. Amaral, along with some of our loyal volunteers in Attleboro’s annual Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 25th. They will be dressed in heroic costumes and holding summer reading banners. Be sure to give them a wave and a shout to let them know you’ll be a Summer Reading Hero!
Our Summer Reading Program, Every Hero Has a Story, Unmask! and Escape the Ordinary, is sponsored by the Attleboro Public Library, Friends of Attleboro Public Library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
