“Dig into Reading” at the Marlborough Public Library

Marlborough-icon-for-CA-web-pageMarlborough – Children will explore all things underground this summer as the Marlborough Public Library Children's Department presents “Dig into Reading,” the 2013 Summer Reading program.

Activities will be open to children from birth through fifth grade and will delve into topics from dinosaurs and mummies to construction vehicles and buried treasure. In addition to weekly story times and crafts, the library will offer drop-in movies, a visit from some real burrowing animals, and hands-on programs on pottery, gardening, and dinosaur fossils. All programs are free of charge.

From June 22to August 20, children can keep track of the number of hours they read, or are read to by an adult, in order to meet reading goals and earn small prizes from the library treasure chest or raffle tickets for the chance to win prizes, including Red Sox tickets, a Kindle Fire, fascinating science kits, and more.

On Saturday, June 22, from 1 to 4 p.m., children can register for the program and enjoy a magic show and refreshments at the “Dig into Reading” opening party.

For more information, call the Children's Room at 508-624-6902 or visit www.marlboroughpubliclibrary.org.
