It’s hot, hot, hot! If you’re looking to stay cool inside but have run out of ideas for entertaining the kids, Cecil County Public Library has solutions! In addition to the fun programs and classes at our branches, we have resources for all ages. For learning crafts and projects, check out our Pinterest page or if you’re looking for books, give these a try:
Unbored games: serious fun for everyone by Joshua Glenn.
Amazing kitchen chemistry projects you can build yourself by Cynthia Light Brown.
Have you signed up for Summer Reading? It’s the perfect (and free) activity to beat the summer heat and there is still plenty of time to turn in your finished reading logs by Saturday, August 8. For children and teens, when you turn in your first reading log, you receive a coupon sheet of great free and discounted local activities: many thanks to our wonderful community sponsors.
Our annual summer reading picnic is Wednesday, August 5th at North East Town Park. Pack a picnic lunch and blankets, and we’ll provide prizes, music, snacks, Mr. Softee ice cream and Kona Ice for all!
Still looking for ideas to keep cool? Grab a CD book at the library or download one with Hoopla and take a long cool cruise in the car. Listening to books promotes literacy and also counts toward your summer reading log.
We hope to see you in the library and at the picnic!
How are you staying cool this summer?
