Central Rappahannock Regional Library Summer Reading Programs Keep Minds Engaged
The Central Rappahannock Regional Library wants to make sure you make the most of your summer by including reading in your summer plans. Now through August 31, everyone can sign up for one of three summer reading programs at any of CRRL’s eight locations or online at www.librarypoint.org/summer:
Kids (Babies – Grade 5): On Your Mark, Get Set…Read!
Teens (Grade 6-12): Get in the Game: Read
Adults: Exercise Your Mind. Read!
Receive a prize just for signing up! Kids and teens can win additional prizes by logging minutes read, and adults can win prizes for writing reviews.
For kids and teens, summer reading is important, not only because it prevents learning loss, but also because it fosters a lifelong love of reading and learning.
“Reading throughout the summer is a vital part of succeeding in school,” said CRRL Director Martha Hutzel. “We help keep kids reading over the summer and have fun doing it.”
Throughout the summer, CRRL is offering special events to keep young minds engaged.
The Sciencetellers will be presenting Power Up!—all about power and energy—at each CRRL location, June 20 – 23. The show is certain to be fast-paced, energetic, and engaging as the performer scientifically makes things fly, bounce, transform and soar, all while telling stories and with the help of the audience.
July 18 – 21, the Wildlife Center of Virginia will present Journey Along the River at all CRRL locations. You can meet some of the wild animals that depend on the river for survival and find out how your actions affect the river, the surrounding environment, and, ultimately, the animals themselves.
In celebration of Harry Potter’s birthday (July 31), the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and the release of The Cursed Child, CRRL will host Harry Potter celebrations at all locations July 29-31. Visit your favorite branch for Hogwarts-related crafts, games, prizes, and to have your picture taken with a book character stand-up or in our wizarding world-themed photo booths.

Many of our summer reading activities are made possible through gifts to the Friends of the Library.
