Chichester Town Library News
As summer approaches, the Chichester Town Library is launching its
Summer Reading Program. Participating individuals must keep track
of their time and report in regularly. They will be eligible for
raffle prizes. Teams, a new addition to the program, will be
competing for a “Pizza/Movie Night” prize in September, also based
on the total number of hours spent reading. Teams will be comprised
of 3-7 year olds, 8-12 year olds and 13-17 year olds. In addition,
the library has the Great Stone Face books and the Isinglass Award
winners in stock to help with the school’s required summer reading.
Sign-up starts June 10th!
In conjunction with the reading portion of the program, the
following events are also scheduled for participants:
• Friday, June 28th, 6:30 p.m.: Fun stations of activities for all
ages, including science, arts and crafts, dance and more!
• Wednesday, July 10th, 6:30 p.m.: For 3-6 year olds - a sleepover
for their stuffed animals. Each participant should bring their
favorite stuffed animal to the library. They will then construct a
car and watch a short movie (The Gruffalo), drive-in style, with
their animal and then leave the animal for the sleepover. The
animals can then be picked up the next day, tired as they will
probably be. Note: There is a separate sign-up for this event.
• Friday, July 19th, 6:30 p.m.: Acclaimed storyteller Gail Drucker
will be visiting.
• Friday, August 23rd, 6:30 p.m.: Movie Night! See Wreck It Ralph
and we’ll pick the raffle winners.
