Fizz, Boom, Read!

Summer's nearly here!  School is nearly done....but let's not take a vacation from reading!  We are pleased to participate in the nation-wide summer reading program "Fizz, Boom, Read!"  Come in with your child starting June 27th to pick up your kit. You must present your New City Library card to receive the packet. For every book read, each child will receive a bubble to put in our beakers and test tubes -- and hopefully they will fizz and boom out the top from all the kids' summer reading!  We are also offering science programs such as Soda Bottle Science, Bubble Trouble, Science Quest Treasure Hunt, and more!  We have music programs planned as well - Mr. Kurt, Matty Roxx, and Romper Room.  Want arts & crafts? Book clubs? We've got those, too!
