Registration for all age groups for The Summer Library Program at The Green Free Library is underway. Stop by the library to register.

The preK to sixth grade portion of the program starts Wednesday, June 19, and runs every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to Wednesday, July 31, with sign-in at 10:15 a.m. under the library’s portico. The tween/teen and adult portions of the program began this past Monday, June 10, and ends Tuesday, Aug. 20, with a variety of programs and activities over the summer months. For more information on the program for all the age groups, stop by the library for brochures and flyers or ask a staff member at the circulation desk.

This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories,” in keeping with this year being the 50th anniversary of man’s first moonwalk. Library readers of all ages will have the opportunity to take part in some cool outer space activities.

Activities will include games, crafts, magic, and plenty of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning mixed in as well. For more information, please call the library at 570-724-4876.
