Tails and Tales Summer Reading Program at the White Sulphur Springs Public Library!
Join the White Sulphur Springs Public Library this summer as we celebrate our Summer Reading Program, Tails and Tales. There will be in-person programs for preschool and elementary-aged children featuring crafts such as animal track imprints and pet decorator crabs. Plus the preschoolers will even go on a LION HUNT!!
In addition, the library has also partnered with the White Sulphur Springs National Fish Hatchery to host a StoryWalk featuring the book: Goldfish on Vacation by Sally Lloyd-Jones. This activity will be located around their nature trail and will run from June 14th- July 24th. “The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson”.
Each in-person program will be limited to 10 children and their caretaker to avoid overcrowding. Please register weekly for each program by calling 304-536-1171.
The preschool program (ages 2-5) will take place on Fridays, starting June 18th-July 23rd at 10:30.
The children’s program (ages 6-12) will take place on Wednesdays, starting June 16th- July 21st at 2:00.
The Teen Summer Reading Challenge (ages 13-19) will run June 6th- July 21st using the Beanstack app. Read books and write brief reviews to be placed into a weekly drawing to win prizes from local business. Register at https://whitesulphursprings.beanstack.com/
We are encouraging our readers to keep track of their books through Beanstack, which can be accessed at https://whitesulphursprings.beanstack.com/. Each age group has a book goal and can receive rewards for the number of books they complete. Rewards are available while supplies last. Readers can chart their books using this app and complete their age appropriate reading goal. Please contact the library at 304-536-1171 if you need help getting into Beanstack. For the preschool and child readers who do reach their goal, there will be a pizza party with fun activities like animal yoga and gift certificates from local businesses at the Brad Paisley Park in July.
