When kids get out of school this year they don’t have to leave all their books behind. “Dig Into Reading” is the theme of the summer reading program at the Seabrook Public Library this year.
Dig into Reading lets kids explore caves and animals who live underground, from earthworms and dinosaurs, through stories, songs, games and other activities.
The 2013 Summer Reading Program is open to all children, ages preschool through young adult, offering programs, prize drawings, story times, and more. Those who get involved also have a chance to dig up dinosaur fossils with the Boston Museum of Science, meet earthworms up close with the Seacoast Science Center, and at the final party, meet an armadillo, a skunk and several more animals with “Critters ‘n Creatures,” courtesy of Seabrook Station nuclear power plant.
Registration for the program begins at the kick-off party, which launches at 3:30 p.m. on June 27. It features the N.H. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Rockingham Community Action Dig into Reading is offered free and is open to the public, however, some events will require registration.
