First, I want to talk to you about the “summer slide.” The “SLIDE” is the loss of learning your child experiences over the summer months. Statistically, learning loss over the summer is shocking. Teachers often play catch up in the fall. .
The Donnelly Public Library wants to help your child over the summer by keeping them motivated to read, discover and learn.
Kick Off June 15th: 10-12 at the Library (4-H Petting Zoo)
Summer Reading Program will be Wednesdays 12-2 starting June 16th, 2021
Every Wednesday from 12-2 Miss Annabelle will feature an innovative program for children K- 6th grade.
We will also be participating in Donnelly Farmers’ Market. We will have limited contact while at Farmers’ Market but we will be there reading. This is not just an opportunity for your children to listen to some wonderful books, but it will also give you an opportunity to shop while minimizing the exposure of your child to some of the high risk elderly individuals around farmers’ market. We will be situated over by the playground this year at Farmers’ Market and hope this will allow us the opportunity to involve the children in play as well as reading. Miss Annabelle and our intern will be working at Farmers’ Market and there to help you with your children. (4-5th graders you may contact Miss Sherry about helping work the book booth as well as participating with Junior Friends of The Donnelly Library.
