Summer Reading Program announced

The theme for the local library's summer reading program 2017, which is set by the NYS Library, is "Build a Better World."
The staff at the Goff Nelson Memorial Library will again collaborate with Tupper Lake Central School to encourage and challenge students to read a book a day over the summer to prevent the "summer slide.”
The school usually offers prizes to students who read the most. Here are some dates for the summer reading programat the library:
June 26th: Registration starts for the Summer Reading Program at 10a.m..
Children and teens can register any time after that. We plan to have face painting, prizes, reading logs, lists of suggested books to read, and giveaways to get everyone excited about reading over the summer.
The readers meet on the four Fridays of July: July 7, 14, 21, and 28 at 10:a.m. There are plans to collaborate with the Kiwanis Club of Tupper Lake again to read some appropriate books and do crafts that are connected with the theme.
On July 21 at 10:15 a.m., Lisa & Klaus Meissner will perform for the program. They will have some stories and songs that go with our theme of "Build a Better World."
