Time to "Dig Into Reading"

The Heath Free Public Library invites children ages 5-12 to sign up for the free Summer Reading & Crafts Program. 

Please come by the library and pick up a reading log to keep track of the books read during the summer. Later, turn them in to receive prizes and enter a free raffle.

Sign up for some fun crafts sessions with Lyra Johnson-Fuller that include some crafts related to the Dig Into Reading theme, updating the giant Mother Nature Marionette for her second appearance at the Heath Fair, and decorating your bicycles for the Heath Fair Parade. The crafts will take place in the blue building on the Fairgrounds four Wednesday evenings: July 17, 24, 31, and August 7 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

For more information, please call 337-4934 ext. 7. Library hours are Monday, 3:00-7:00 p.m., Wednesday, 12:00-7:00 p.m., and Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Crafts sessions are sponsored by The Friends of the Heath Free Public Library and are also supported in part by a grant from the Heath Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Dig Into Reading is sponsored by the Heath Free Public Library, the Massachusetts Library System, Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
