One Down, One to Go

School's out for summer, and it will be for another whole month.  If that early glow of excitement at being free to sleep in and stay up late has started to fade, and your kids are looking for something to do, look no further than the Cambridge Public Library. Our libraries continue to offer wonderful summer programs for children of all ages, as well as respite from the heat.
Mr. Mike showcased each animal, discussing
its usefulnes to our Earth with the audience.

 On Wednesday, July 18th twenty-five children attended “Museum of Science Presents: Animal Invaders” at the O’Neill branch and learned about three formidable home invaders – cockroaches, snakes, and rats.  One mother, who attended with her five- and six-year-old children expressed great appreciation for these summer programs, saying,“We are huge fans.” Another mother added that the library and its programs are “a gift.”

All materials were provided by the library
but these kite makers brought their
own ingenuity and craftiness.

On the same day, the Teen Room at the Main Library offered a do-it-yourself kite-making workshop led by Maya Escobar, Teen Services Librarian. Yesterday there was a jewelry workshop. On August 2nd teens can show up for a discussion of The Contender, a CRLS required reading book . Other required summer reading books for CRLS will be discussed throughout the month of August.

More information about activities in the Teen Room can be found on their blog .  To find out about summer offerings at all of the branches, visit the library's website or pick up the red brochure "Dream Big READ!" at your home branch.

There are always great things happening at the library! For more information on how you can get involved with the Friends and help us to support our Cambridge libraries click here.
