We are going to be offering a selection of exciting online and virtual programming – special events, reading challenges, fun activities, and more – throughout the summer months from June 29th through August 31st. We have combined resources with the other libraries in Ulster County to offer you virtual events.
Children who participate in this year’s program will work on a BINGO card. Contact us at 845-679-6405 to get a copy of your BINGO card and stickers. We can either mail them to you or provide them through curbside pickup.
Point your browser to Summer Reading 2020. You will find all of the information you need for your challenge squares as well as how to access the virtual events by ScienceTellers and PageTurners. Families can view these shows for several weeks online after they premier.
Prizes: Anyone child who signs up will receive a Stewart’s Ice Cream Cone Gift Certificate. Those who complete at least one BINGO and turn in their card will receive a LEGO
minifigure mystery pack. They will also get a raffle ticket for each BINGO on their card (maximum of 12). Raffle Prizes will include a LEGO Ideas Pop-up Book 21315 Building Kit (859 Pieces).
Adult and Teen prizes will include gift certificates to Golden Notebook.
