Summer Programs (a partial list)

FIZZ_BOOM_READ_logo Primary StackedFizz, Boom, Read! — This year’s summer reading program bulletin board challenges you to think about what you read.  For every book you read, add a marker to the bulletin board in the appropriate column — fiction / non-fiction, adult / child.  Who reads more fiction? More non-fiction? More books?  Let’s see how kids and adults stack up.
