The Youth Summer Digital Book Club starts next week. We will be encouraging youth to read 20 minutes a day with fun activities. Our staff Tricia and Kaylyn will both be meeting weekly with two groups of youth once a week for 6 weeks.Staff dropped off the kits of supplies to the programs for each youth enrolled today. Each kit has all of the supplies they need for the activities planned, and at least 5 books from the Pernet library (catered to their reading levels and interests from registration), a reading tracker, and other important information. We will be swapping out the books during the program as the youth finish them, using the same Covid-19 measures currently used by Public Libraries.
This is made possible partially by grants from The Fred Harris Daniels Foundation and Reliant Foundation and Carolyn M. from the Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts (GSCWM) who donated 10 boxes of books earlier this year for her Gold Award Girl Scouts Project.
