Dream Big–Read!!

Summer reading for everyone!! Visit the Atwater and Smith Library to sign up for our summer reading programs. There are special programs for adults, teens and children.

We invite your children to join the and 's Summer Reading Program and attend the fun programs and events we are planning for children from birth to 8th grade. 

The public library cares about your children and has planned programs to keep them reading and learning all summer. Whether keeping track of the amount of time your children spend reading or the number of books they have read this summer, children who join the summer library program keep their brains active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed.

And remember, you are your child's first teacher. Look at picture books with your children who have not learned to read and point out people, animals and objects in the pictures. Read to your children and ask them to read to you. Your librarians will be happy to help you find books that are just right. We hope that you and your family enjoy looking at books and reading together and that you discover the treasures of your library.

The Friends of the North Branford Public Libraries sponsors all our special programs at the library and new this year,  has donated one free admission to any Open Bounce Session to all our young readers that complete the take home program!! 

This summer's theme, Dream Big–READ! includes many things–dreams, and planets, owls, , turtles, , music and more.  Be sure to check out the calendar of events at both libraries. Registration is required.

So dream big this summer and read, read, read!!

Sciencetellers, our kickoff program was spectacular. What a blast.. literally as the ethanol combined with heat in one of the many chemical concoctions we learned about!! Thanks Alexis! Our science books flew off the shelf as kids left the library thinking about the wonders of science.
