Summer Fun for Kids at Arcadia Public Library
June 29, 2020 – Kids can “Dig Deeper” and still enjoy summer fun with Summer at Arcadia Public Library. Even though the building itself remains closed, Arcadia Public Library is offering an eightweek summer reading program, virtual storytimes, special performers, and other fun, educational programs.
As parents know, keeping children engaged at home with reading and learning has been a challenge. This summer, children through eighth grade can be registered online at http://www.ArcadiaCA.gov/Library (link opens in new tab) to record the number of minutes they read (or are read to) and to enjoy 15 “Super Summer Challengers,” earning up to six virtual badges along the way.
Starting July 15, when they’ve completed 500 minutes and completed their badges, they can come in to pick up their reading reward. All recording must be finished by Saturday, August 1, so there’s plenty of time! Reading rewards must be claimed by September 30.
Readers and their parents can check out books from the Library using our “front-door pick-up” service or access great digital books through TumbleBook Library, OverDrive, Libby, or Gale eBooks. It’s all available on the Library’s website through the “eBooks and More” page or by calling 626.821.5566. Arcadia Library is as close as your telephone, smart phone or computer!
Visit the Library’s webpage for more information on virtual storytimes, including “Baby Adventures” and “Storytime Adventures” for ages 2-8. Older children can enjoy Noteworthy Puppets’ production of “Sherlock Homerun: A Whodunit Puppet Musical” online on Saturday, July 25 at 11 am and 2:30 pm. Look for the online “Events Calendar” for instructions on how to view children’s programs.
Also check out “Funology”—a virtual hands-on crafting and activities program—and the “Middle Book Meet,” a book discussion of The Unteachables, by Gordon Korman, scheduled for July 29.
There is so much to enjoy at Arcadia Public Library this summer—visit virtually and see!
