New Castle Library launches new summer learning program
NEW CASTLE — The New Castle-Henry County Public Library’s children’s summer reading program will take an innovative approach this year with a focus on holistic learning, according to a statement.
The summer apprenticeship program will begin on June 4. This year’s theme is “Oceans of Possibilities”. As well as being invited to spend the summer reading, children are also encouraged to discover and create their own way throughout the summer.
Children and parents will track learning using summer learning paper journals or a new easy-to-use app through Reader Zone. In order to complete the program, participants will have to read 800 minutes, complete four discovery activities and four creation activities. Discovery activities can be supplemented with hands-on exploration by participating in a library program or visiting the park. Creative activities can be completed by designing, drawing, writing, or building sea creatures and their homes. Once half of the requirements have been met, participants can visit the library for a prize. After fulfilling all requirements, entrants will receive a prize, a free book to keep, and a raffle ticket to enter to win one of two prize baskets.
The library will also host “Oceans of Programs,” including Marvelous Mondays at Arts Park, free kids’ lunches and family movies on Wednesdays, free kids’ breakfast every Thursday morning as well as Family REC in June and Family Storytime in July. the library will host a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Station event once a month on Fridays and two different pool parties at the YMCA, as well as a foam party.
Teens and adults are invited to take the summer reading challenge by reading 800 minutes in eight weeks to enter a raffle for a grand prize. Teens in grades 7-12 are invited to enjoy nautical and pirate-themed activities that take place weekly.
The summer learning program will begin from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 4, with a bouncy house, free snow cones, and a visit from Piggy and Elephant.
