Summer Reading at the Rutland Free Library
June – August, 2015

About the Program
The Rutland Free Library invites kids of all ages to join the 2015 Summer Reading Club.
Reading during the summer is lots of fun and helps keep skills sharp. Membership is easy. Just let us know you wish to join. You’ll receive a colorful membership packet. Record the books you read during the summer. Bring your reading record in throughout the summer and receive stickers, ice cream, and a book. Visit the library for craft programs, performances, and great books. Add your name to our readers’ display.
Children of all ages may participate because the reader’s record can be used for children who are reading independently or being read to.

 Tales to Tails

 Tales to Tails is a monthly program to encourage beginning readers to practice their reading skills.  Trained therapy dogs and their handlers are available for children to meet, greet, and read aloud to.  Free and open to all. Thank you to Caring Canines volunteers for this program.

Story hour takes place every Thursday morning (except during the month of August) from 10 -10 :45 upstairs in the spacious Fox Program Room.  Story hours promote early literacy and socialization skills in a fun setting. Each session offers stories, songs, movement, and a fun craft. No registration is required. Suggested for ages 2 and older. Free and open to all.

 Babies and Toddlers Rock

Babies and Toddlers Rock, a music and pre-literacy program for children 0-24 months, is scheduled every Monday morning of each month during the school year from 10 – 10:30. Free and open to all. Children and parents love this program. Join us and see why.
