OXFORD – The Oxford Memorial Library is geared up and ready to go for its annual Summer Reading Program.
Although the program is already underway with the first presentation last night, there’s still plenty of time for all avid young readers to to sign up, said Youth Services Coordinator Kristina Clark.
“Our program this summer is going to focus on the theme of ‘Dream Big and Read,’” she said, explaining that each week will explore a different variation on the theme such as dreams, wishes, space and the sky (because the sky’s the limit) with a story and crafts or activities.
For example, the program kicked off last night with a presentation about fairy tales. Afterwards, the children received paint stirrers to decorate in any creative way they chose, turning simple wooden sticks into colorful pieces unique to each child’s imagination.
