Fizz, Boom, Read!


June 2014

Hi families!

Your children are invited to participate in Canaan Town Library’s Summer Reading Program and attend the fun events we are planning. This summer’s theme FIZZ, BOOM, READ! will encourage your child’s inner mad scientist to explore reading about and discovering the scientific world around them. All programs are free and open to all children, preschool through 5th grade.

This annual program is designed to encourage reading for pleasure in a relaxed environment. In addition to the basic reading program, our Special Saturday activities are:


July 5: 11 am-2 pm: Discover Your Senses : Test your senses in our science stations!


July 12: 10 am -11 am: The Magic of Science – live show at Cardigan Mountain School*

July 25: 6 pm-7:30 pm: Stuffed Animal Sleepover (Only stuffed animals stay overnight)

Put some fizz and bang into your summer by joining our reading program!


Happy Summer Reading!

The Friends need your help

Plants arrive!
With plant sale just around the corner, it’s time to bust out your shovels and pots.  The Friends of the Library are looking for healthy, viable plant donations for the plant sale; Hostas, Bleeding Hearts, and Solomon Seal are highly desired, but most native perennials are of interest.

If you have plants you would like to donate, they may be potted up and brought to the home of Nancy Loomis — call the library for more information.

If you have more brawn than flora, we need your help, too!  There is lots of digging and potting to do, call the library or Nancy Loomis to get started.

The plant sale will be held at the library on Saturday, June 14 from 9 am – 1 pm.
