Winter

Summer may look a little different for us this year, but some things are staying the same! We are still having our Annual Summer Reading Program, this year’s theme is Imagine Your Story. Please sign up for Summer Reading by going to: https://bit.ly/HLSummerReading

After you sign up, you will be taken to our new Virtual Summer Reading platform where kids can record books and minutes read, and participate in fun activities to earn points towards their prizes! Read to Me is for children from birth to 4 years old, I Can Read is for children ages 5 to 7 and BridgeKids is for children ages 8 to 12. The younger kids will complete activities and log their reading to earn points that will unlock prizes. Bridgekids will log reading and complete activities to earn points to trade in for raffle tickets. The raffle tickets will go into a prize drawing and four winners will win Mystery Box prizes!

With everything digital this year, it is so easy to track your reading without worrying about lost logs. Prizes will be available for pick-up at the library! Feel free to email Children’s Librarian Sarah (sarah@hamptonlibrary.org) with any questions.

What We Are Reading...

That's What Dinosaurs Do, by Jory John

That's What Dinosaurs Do, by Jory John

Jory John delivers another charming tale about being yourself and the struggle to fit in with the expectations of others. Dinosaur struggles with the advice of experts, the expectations of the townspeople, and in the end, has to make a tough decision about denying their true nature. Is it worth it to sacrifice your identity to make other people happy?

Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson

Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson

A series of surprising events tears young Jim Hawkins from his familiar life at the Admiral Benbow Inn and sends him on a high seas adventure that tests his courage and teaches him that not everything is black and white and you never know who you can trust. Murderous and deceitful pirates, high seas combat, deserted islands and buried treasure frame a timeless coming of age story and a true adventure classic.
