About the Program

During the school year, BOOKENDS is the name of our elementary school age program for readers and non-readers alike.  The program strives to encourage non-readers to pick up a book through hands on activities typically revolving around a monthly theme.  It is also a great way for kids to meet new people and make new friends.

During the summer, our BOOKENDS program will revolve around the Summer Reading Program theme Fizz, Boom, Read!  Our goal with this line-up of programming is to encourage kids to step away from their electronics and use their imaginations.

Please contact Anna or Melissa for more information.
