FIZZ, BOOM, READ! Summer Reading


Over 145 kids are signed up for the summer reading program! Remember, everyone who signs up and reaches their goal twice, is invited to an ice cream party at the Lothrop the first week of school. But, don’t worry, there’s still time for your child to sign-up.

We have a special treat for you! For our third year, we are collaborating with Camp Betsy Cox and Volunteers for Peace (VFP.) Volunteers For Peace organizes, promotes and supports voluntary service opportunities in the USA and abroad as an effective means of intercultural education, service learning, and community development. This year the four young women are visiting from Turkey, Taiwan, Mexico, and South Korea.

Next week, these young women will host our 10:00 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday story hours. There will be stories and crafts from their home countries. This is not to be missed! So, even if you do not have children, we hope you will join us Wednesday and/or Thursday to meet these wonderful young women.

Upcoming Events

Robots! Wednesday, August 13 @ 2:00 p.m. Build your own moving, battery-operated robot! Limit to 15 kids, 3rd grade and up. Signup going on now.

End of Summer Party Saturday, August 16 @ 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. Join us at the Pittsford Fire House Party for face painting, glow in the dark bubbles and a special nighttime craft! Free Ice Cream Cones 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Never too Late to Signup! Your children are invited to join our summer reading program, Fizz, Boom, Read! and attend the fun programs and events we are planning. Programs are free and open to children of all ages and sign-up for the reading program begins on Wednesday, June 11. The first 25 families to sign-up for the reading program will automatically be entered into a raffle to win one of two family pass to the Pittsford Rec. Center.

It’s simple! Your child decides how much to read each week and keeps track of their reading by: number of hours read, number of pages read, number of chapters read or number of books read. Keep track of how much you read, show us your reading log, collect a popsicle coupon and go pick up your popsicle. That’s it! Hope to see lots of you this summer.
