Summer Reading at Maplewood Public Library:
This year brings challenges to normal summer reading programs nationwide. Maplewood Public Library is having a summer reading program with a few changes. The library will not be open to come in to browse for books or attend programs, instead they will be doing prize pick up later in the summer with the date has yet to be decided. Students can track reading by printing this reading log and tracking daily reading on the calendar provided. No printer? Use any calendar to mark every day the participant has read at least 30 minutes. Prizes include a book, treasure box choices, and a raffle entry for every 20 days read. Extra raffle entries are earned by participating in challenges as well as viewing Facebook video story times & other online programs.
Fractured Fairy Tale Read-Alouds will post to https://www.facebook.com/maplewoodpubliclibrary/ video library at 1pm on Tuesdays, June 2 – July 21. No registration necessary, comment on the video to get a raffle ticket for viewing.
THE CELIA AND LITTLE CELIA SHOW, a one-of-a-kind musical puppetry experience featuring singalong favorites plus new music, and of course, Little Celia! This program will require pre-registration to get the link to a private YouTube page. You can view the video at your leisure the week of June 22-27.
With the new Hunger Games book release in May, we look forward to having a fun night of discussion and trivia with our 12-18-year old fans. Register to attend a Zoom party on Thursday, June 18 at 7pm.
