Build a better world this summer at the Saxton B!
For every 3 books or 100 pages of reading you can choose to donate a can of cat food or a bag of dog treats (provided by the Library) to Our Companions Animal Rescue of Connecticut instead of choosing a prize. Kids who choose to donate at least 6 times during the Summer Reading Program will get to adopt their own stuffed animal! Help us meet our goal of donating 500 cans and treats this summer!
What kinds of special events are there?
Glad you asked! We will offer fun, free, shows and activities every Friday during the Summer Reading Program. Story Time will continue on Tuesdays at 10:30 all summer long. You will receive a calendar of events when you register. JOIN US FOR OUR KICK OFF PROGRAM: Sciencetellers: Building Tall Ships & Pirate Tales! Set sail with us on a thrilling action-packed adventure about a crew of pirates marooned on a desert island. Throughout the story, volunteers from the audience will help us explore the incredible science behind clouds, combustion, air pressure, scientific variables and more! Friday, June 23rd at 2:00 @ YEOMANS HALL.
