Summer Reading Club Starting At Verona Library

By on June 8, 2017

The Verona Public Library will kick off its annual Summer Reading Club on Saturday, June 17. Children’s registration will begin at 9 a.m. Sign up for the program, then stay for an astonishing performance of Great Scott! It’s Magic! at 11 a.m. All ages are welcome.

This year’s theme is “Build a Better World,” which is timely as Verona is currently “Building a Better Library” with a full renovation of the town’s historic Carnegie Library building. In the meantime, services continue in the Annex Building of the Verona Community Center at 880 Bloomfield Avenue. If you haven’t yet seen the temporary library space, be sure to drop by.

While the Library’s Summer Reading program is all about having fun, it also serves an important purpose. Studies show that kids can lose reading momentum over the summer if they don’t stay in a routine. It’s been found that children who read at least six books during the summer either maintained or improved their reading skills. This is not only beneficial scholastically, but the Library makes it enjoyable. With a mix of reading challenges, prizes and exciting programs, kids are sure to remain engaged throughout the summer at the Library.
