Northborough: Fizz, Boom, Read 2014 summer reading kick-off show

June 24, 2014

| $2.

Marlborough – Children will explore all things scientific this summer as the Marlborough Public Library Children's Department presents the 2014 Summer Reading program, “Fizz, Boom, Read!”

In addition to weekly story times and crafts, the library will offer movies, a visit from some backyard animals, and a variety of hands-on art and science programs delving into topics from robots and rockets to biology and math. Activities will be free of charge and open to children from birth through fifth grade.

From June 21 to Aug. 15, 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 a fabulous grand prize. Raffle prizes will include a Museum of Science family membership, a Kindle Fire, science kits and more.

On Saturday, June 21, from 1 to 4 p.m., children and their families can register for summer reading and enjoy a craft, a snack and a fun robotics program at the “Fizz, Boom, Read” opening party.

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