Summer Children’s Room Activities

As the end of the school year approaches let the Children’s Room help keep your family occupied this summer:

  • Have your children join the Summer Reading Club.  This year’s theme is “One World, Many Stories”.  Children will see how many books they can read as a group.  When they check out books, they will have a chance to win weekly prizes.
  • Take out a book about sports or activities you can do together outside.  Look at the call number j796 in row 6.
  • Borrow books on summer reading lists or books for children preparing for Kindergarten.
  • Borrow a museum pass.  You can visit a zoo, see the Pawtucket Red Sox play, or enjoy various other area museums at reduced admission.
  • Rent movies.  Keep cool inside whether you are watching new releases or Disney classics.  Remember that Thursday is 2 for 1 day!
  • Bring your children (grades 3-5) to build Legos on the 4th Monday of the month.  There is a new theme each month.
  • Bring your preschoolers to drop-in Summer storytimes on various Thursday mornings.
  • Attend our monthly drop-in Saturday craft.
  • Broaden your horizons.  Summer is a great time for kids to find a new author to enjoy or explore a new non-fiction topic.
  • Use our computers.  The Children’s Room has computers available with preloaded activities as well as those for internet/game use. Adults can borrow laptops from the Circulation department for up to 2 hours and use them in the Children’s Room while they supervise their children.
