2014 Summer Reading Programs/Activities
June 23 – August 9 2014
“Fancy Fission” Reading Club
The Reading Club is for students in 6-12 grade with weekly prizes and a chance on special grand prizes. Pick up a reading log (side 2) and read at least 2 hours each week for 7 weeks. When you come into the library you will receive a weekly prize (final week is a 2G Flash Drive, while supplies last) and a coupon for a grand prize. Chose from a HP® ChromeBook, one of five $100 gift cards or a limousine ride to school on opening day (one for middle and one for high school and must live and attend school in Danbury). You can register and report online, but you must come into the library for the weekly prizes. Also, your summer reading lists and books are on display, but we are always available to help find what you need. This year you can also register and report online. So get started now: register and report.
Mayor Boughton's Reading Challenge
If you are going into 6th, 7th, or 8th grade next fall you could meet Mayor Boughton at a special ceremony. Just read at least 2 hours each week, and you will receive an invitation to join the Mayor at City Hall In August. When you join the Fancy Fission Reading Club, you are also on track to become an official Mayor Boughton DYNAMITE Reader.
Free Programs and Activities
There are too many free programs/activities to list here, but you can view the Flyer or go to the Events page to register for these fun programs. Here is a list of programs/activities with dates and times. There is even a link to the Events calendar so you can click on the date and program you want to attend.
Summer Reading Lists
The reading lists are available in the library along with the books for each grade. You can check the catalog to determine if the book you want is checked out. And don't forget to look at our new fiction and nonfiction books. Your reading lists are "suggested" titles. You can read anything as long as it is parent approved.
