Summer Reading 2019
'A Universe of Stories'
A Universe of Stories! The 2019 Summer Reading Program was a
great success. Mayor Hawke kicked off the program by reading
“Hey-ho, to Mars we’ll go!” and joining us in a game of space
Bingo. We twisted balloons into alien creatures, and viewed the
stars over Gardner in a planetarium show. We were enlightened by
the science and stories of the ScienceTellers, and entertained
by the music and songs of Davis Bates. Rainforest Reptiles came
for a visit, and everyone got to meet the reptiles up close. We
made planets, and comets, and flying saucers. And everyone had
fun adding stickers every week to create a mosaic poster.
Over 200 children registered, reading for 1,800 hours.
