The Carpenter-Carse Library is happy to announce our 2019 Summer Reading Club lineup! We have a fun and exciting summer of programming ahead. 

These events are for children ages 5-10 (some are all ages, some for families, as noted) and are all free. Please read the full event descriptions below, and then you can sign up for as many as you like. You must also fill out a waiver for each child attending. Space is limited and we'll do our best to accommodate everyone. We will send you an email confirmation of what you have signed up for once we receive your registration. Waivers can be filled out and brought to the library or emailed to jen@carpentercarse.org.

Ages 5-10; Registration required. Drop-off.

Program description:

Did you know that we all hold the story of the universe in our own bodies? From the tips of our toes, to the tiny bones of our inner ear, we are made up of the same material as stars, planets, and even galaxies. Not only that, but our bodies are built using the same blueprints used to build everything from chickens to chimpanzees. We will explore these connections through books, an interactive puppet show, hands-on crafts, and a rock and fossil exploration station.
