GILFORD — The summer reading programs at the Gilford Public Library kicked off Monday, June 29, with an ice cream social and music with local musician Paul Warnick.
More than 200 visitors made their way to the library to celebrate the launch of another busy summer filled with programs, visiting authors, children's storytimes, and reading. The Gilford Public Library offers three levels of participation in the Summer Reading Program according to age or reading level. Each level (adult, teen, child) has its own unique theme, reading log, weekly prizes, and different activities are geared toward each group.
The children's theme this year is "Every Hero Has a Story" and children visiting the library this summer will have a chance to meet local heroes in a series of themed storytimes with local firefighters, bus drivers, police officers, and construction workers.
Adults are challenged to "Escape The Ordinary" and explore different genres of reading this summer, and can win prizes baskets that spotlight products and activities from across the Granite State.
Teens are invited to "Unmask a Great Read" and challenge themselves with writing camp and science-themed activities all summer long.
Sign-ups and programs will be on-going throughout the summer and new materials are arriving each week.
