“As always, we will offer reading time, games, music, crafts and refreshments that tie into our splashy theme,” Bauer said.

“We’ll have take-home activity sheets, reading logs, and a chance for the children to win prizes for keeping up with their reading this summer.”

The free weekly one-hour sessions are scheduled as follows: three, four and five-year-olds, Wednesdays at 3 p.m.; K5-1st grades, Thursdays at 11 a.m. and 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders on Thursdays at 3 p.m.
