CROWN POINT | This year, children and teens will explore science through reading as the Crown Point Community Library presents “Fizz, Boom, Read!” as its summer reading theme. The free Summer Reading Club is open to all ages, preschool through adult, and will run from Monday through July 25. Registration begins Monday.
A “Fizz, Boom, Read” kickoff party is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 17 at the Crown Point library, 122 N. Main St. It will be a day of science experiments, tasty treats, crafts and more. The event is free and open to all registered participants.
The Summer Reading Club will feature a variety of science-themed, educational, and fun programs to help fill up the summer. Children and teens can enjoy other activities such as Read to the Dogs, Lunch on the Lawn, Mad Scientist Lab science experiments, Story Times, Bingo for Books, Lego Clubs and more.
Not to be left out, adults can participate in lively book discussions, craft programs, knitting and crocheting groups and more and be entered to win a Kindle Paper white donated by the Friends of the Crown Point Library.
According to experts, reading over the summer prevents “summer learning loss” in children, and "choice” reading helps students become better readers, writers and spellers.
