SRP roundup

We are heading into our 3rd week of Summer Reading Program activities and thought we would share some photos and details about what we are up to lately.

For our kick-off events, we were lucky to have Jack Gladstone perform songs with his daughter Mariah performing American Indian sign language alongside him. The audience loved them!

Last week we journeyed to Africa. The younger children created elephant masks, and the older children made lion masks. We also read stories and sang songs about Africa, and some of us even learned some Swahili.

We also had a great group of teens come and work on journaling projects. They decorated their own journals and then spent an hour writing about their hopes, dreams, selves, and futures.

Stay tuned for more news and pictures as we continue our adventures this summer!

What lovely masks - wish I had one on my refrigerator - I miss "kid art."
