Digging into reading at Peninsula Public Library
(Page 2 of 2)
Jason Brendler/Herald
Peninsula Public Library’s Summer Reading program had children learning about archeology through a “dig” sponsored by the Long Island Children’s Museum.
This was just one event that the library hosts over the summer, as in terms of the “digging into reading” theme, there are four more events planned. All kids have to do is register and come to the library, as the reading is not a requirement, but something that is just encouraged.
“I enjoy it because it actually brings kids to the library and gets them excited about something other than video games,” said Matulewicz. “We want them to see the library as a fun place to come.”
