The Hudson Falls Free Library has announced details about their “Tails and Tales” Summer Reading Program as well as series of six tie-in activities called “Animal Adventures,” all supported for the first time by a grant from Stewart’s Holiday Matching Grant program.
Sign-ups for the Summer Reading Program, with the theme of Tails and Tales, will begin on Wed., June 30. Those interested can pick up an information packet or go straight to their ReadSquared website hfflny11.readsquared.com to learn more.
Children ages 4-12 will have the opportunity to read to win fun prizes like, finger puppets, slap bracelets and animals themed masks. Every badge won on the ReadSquared website will correlate to an animal sticker to add to the library’s bulletin board jungle!
Teens who participate will be able to read for stickers to put on their Hudson Falls Free Library branded water bottles.
Tying in with the Summer Reading Program will be six weeks of activities called Animal Adventures. For children age 5 and up, these will be socially distant, outside, and by registration only.
