Summer Reading Program Schedule

Summer Reading Program Kickoff: Mini-Floats!
To kickoff this year’s Summer Reading Program, we want to throw a parade and we need your help! We will have some boxes with decorative items inside to help you design your own mini parade float! They will be outside the library so you can pick them up. Grab one and send us a picture of the completed craft by June 30th! Send images to: nlzineproject@gmail.com. We will make a virtual parade in time for the 4th of July. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Summer Reading Log
This summer, the summer reading program theme is (Re)Imagine Your Story! We want to celebrate the magic in this world with fantastic storytelling and fun! For a regular summer, the library typically provides reading logs for readers to mark down what they have read for prizes. We are still doing that, but this time the logs will be digital on READSquared. Log your minutes read at: http://nllibraryny10.readsquared.com/As you read, you will be entered for our awesome raffle prizes! Happy reading to you!

NL Mystery Forum

This summer we challenge teens and adults (ages 12+) to solve a mystery. In a small town, sixteen-year old native Noah Frisby goes missing! Participants take on the role of missing persons investigators and comb through the evidence seeking leads. The game takes place in 2 rounds for the month of July. Specifics about how to solve the mystery will be in the investigator’s packet. Contact the library at: nlzineproject@gmail.com to request your packet. Do you know what happened to Noah Frisby?
