Summer Reading Club at the East Brunswick Public Library

Summer Reading Club at the East Brunswick Public Library
Join the East Brunswick Public Library’s Summer Reading Club and Make a Splash!

This year’s summer Reading Club will invite members to color fish during Fishy Fun on Thursday, July 1, from 10 to 11 a.m.; seek adventure during “High Sea Adventure Carnivals!” on Thursday, July 15, and Wednesday, Aug. 18; and spend the day at Crystal Springs on Wednesday, Aug. 4.

For those veteran club members, this year’s plan has a different twist. Rather than counting the minutes you read, club members will keep track of the number of days they read for at least 15 minutes. Read for at least seven days and earn a special surprise. Read for a minimum of 14 days over the summer and earn a certificate for a sweet treat from the Library’s A Novel Café. The club is open to readers and pre-readers. Register at the Library beginning June 14 or visit www.ebpl.org/kids .
