Readers of all ages across Vermont are invited to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge! Read or listen to any book and track minutes using the Beanstack web or mobile app.
The Library will have Summer Reading Logs available starting Monday, June 21. They will be located at the Youth desk in the library with the logo Summer Reading Logs attached to the bin they will be in. They will be set up according to grade level. Once a child has picked out their reading log they may then go to the Help desk to pick up one reading bag with a ‘Tails and Tales’ logo on it. These bags are for children PreK and up. Inside the bag will be summer program related ‘goodies’. We will have more information on summer programs soon. They will begin after the first week in July.
This online video program will continue through the month of April via video.
Do you think you could build a robot using a small scrub brush?
Bristlebots are simple, tiny robots that buzz around like bugs.
They are easy to build and fun to play with, and you do not need any previous experience with robotics to make one. Participants can create their own bristle bot from a kit that will be provided by the library for this program.
