Pittsfield Library summer reading program begins June 25

  PITTSFIELD – Registration is open for the Pittsfield Public Library’s 2012 summer reading program “Dream Big – Read.”  Reading logs and Sea Dogs tickets are available for all participants, and children have an opportunity to win prizes by reading each week.
  The reading program kicks off during the week of June 25.  Toddler story time, for ages infant through 6 years, is Tuesdays from 10:15 – 11 a.m.  Children listen to stories, sing, dance, and do a craft activity.
  Book Buddies is Tuesdays from 12 – 1 p.m.  Children in grades 1-6 are paired up, read together, participate in literacy activities and games, and enjoy a snack.
  Children in grades 3-5 are invited to join staff from the Challenger Learning Center on Thursday, June 28 from 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 for a workshop on Astronaut Life. The hands-on, interactive program investigates astronaut life and explores how astronauts eat and attend to daily needs. Space is limited for this program, and pre-registration is required.
