Fizz Boom Read for Kids ; Spark a Reaction for Teens

FIZZ BOOM READ IS THE 2014 FREE SUMMER READING PROGRAM AT THE TOWN OF VAIL PUBLIC LIBRARY weekly from: June 10th - August 5th from 1 - 3 pm.

 

Vail Summer Reading Program

 

This summer we have  three separate programs  built into our annual Summer Reading Program.  There is something for readers of all ages.  We will explore all things scientific and technology-based as Vail Public Library presents €œFizz Boom Read€ during their summer library program. Activities will include programs on simple machines, animal science, river entomology and physics. Kids read independently and keep a log to be eligible for prizes.

 

Kids

Each Tuesday, the two-hour Summer Reading Program is from 1 - €“ 3 p.m. The first hour of fun encompasses log recording, crafts and games. The second hour features a special guest.  Students entering 1st - 5th grades may enjoy this weekly program.

 Tweens

 If your child is a fourth, fifth or sixth grader, they have the choice between the regular Fizz, Boom Read program and the book discussion group.  This "Tween" Summer Reading Program is a weekly book discussion and science exploration for 4th - 6th graders. Independent reading is encouraged for all. The book discussion group will meet at the same time as the original program.  Kids may join the other group for their special guest or help out in the library. With our teen volunteers and excitement about our 3D printer, we will have some technology fun.
