SHERBURNE – This summer, the Sherburne Public Library will celebrate “Get a Clue,” the theme of their 2007 Summer Reading Program.
The Summer Reading Program will be open to children ages 3 to 12, with ages 8 through 12 meeting at 1 p.m. each Wednesday, and ages 3 through 8, along with their caretakers, meeting at 10 a.m. each Thursday for a junior version of the program.
The program begins on Wednesday, July 11. Children ages 8 to 12 will enjoy Rod Sutton’s Reptile World. The library will host all sorts of slinky, scaly guests, who are not for the squeamish. On Thursday, 3 through 8 year olds will enjoy an imaginary visit with snakes.
The fun continues on July 18, when children will be able to get a clue about the work of author/illustrator Lois Ehlert. The day’s activities will include reading some of her clever children’s literature, following which children will get the chance to experiment with hands-on collage making that duplicates some of Ehlert’s illustrations. Similar activities will be offered Thursday for the younger crowd.
