Children’s Summer Reading Program Events 2014



“Fizz Boom Read!” at the Elizabeth Taber Library!

Children ages 2-12 and their families can discover the joy of reading at the Elizabeth Taber Library this summer.  The fun begins on Monday, June 23rd and continues until Friday, August 1.  Play the “Fizz Boom Read” Reading Game for fun, prizes and a good cause.  Thanks to the generosity of Eastern Bank and the Sippican Woman’s Club, we are using the time spent reading to support the work of Heifer International.

Pre-Readers: Help decorate our library by putting up a sticker each visit to the library.
