Kids: Dip Into Some Great Summer Reading!
The first week of Bernardsville Public Library's summer reading program has started with a SPLASH! In fact, that's the theme of the statewide reading program for children this summer - "Make a Splash at Your Library."
As you enter the library lobby, you will be immersed in a beautiful display created in part by library volunteer Keiko Matsuura and Youth Services librarian Michaele Casey with contributions as well from Bedwell School. This display depicts a fantastic underwater scene complete with coral, wondrous sea life and a startled diver. Jellyfish, squid, a sea turtle and various fish appear to swim in mid-air as a young diver descends into the watery realm. The diver is as surprised as you will be when you see just how gorgeous this underwater world is. Books about sea life have been placed around the display by our Youth Services librarians, and children are encouraged to borrow these books.
Be sure to register your children for this program soon. The sooner they get their feet wet, the sooner they will become great readers!
