Each day of Library Society camp will begin with a book talk, which will include books from your child’s summer reading lists as well as new and classic items in our collection related to our camp theme, Building a Better World. On Friendship day, we will look at illustrators like woodblock artists Erin Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee, The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles) as well as Mary Azarian (The Man Who Lived Alone, A Gardener’s Alphabet) and experiment with printmaking. Exploring Sustainability, we will see how Laura Ingalls Wilder helped with chores in Little House in the Big Woods compared with Little Frog in Louise Erdrich’s The Birch Bark House and try our hand at some pioneering projects. Campers will consider Mindfulness while trying out the Head Space app and reading Star Wars, before making their own LED light sabers. Campers will explore national and local non-fiction, as well as popular fiction writers like Kate DiCamillo, Kwame Alexander, and Lynda Mullaly Hunt. Our books and themes will make for a fun, literary, and interactive camp session for your rising third through fifth graders, finishing with a pizza party on Friday!

Registration deadline: Friday, May 19th
