Woonsocket Summer Reading Program kicks off with fun activities

The first week of the Woonsocket Community Library Summer Reading Program has been a successful one! There were three main events this week in which students from the Woonsocket and surrounding communities were able to take part in.  

Makerspace Mondays started off the week having over 28 students in attendance.  Makerspaces are simply activities in which individuals can gather together to create and explore.  Students spent several hours rotating between Legos, origami, art, snap circuits, magnetic blocks, and a variety of different blocks. 

On Wednesday, over 23 students were able to come for the “Color Me Parking Lot” day, in which they were able to use their creative skills to decorate the school parking lot and entry way with sidewalk chalk.  The rain delayed the start time a bit, but the students were more than willing to pull the Legos and snap circuit boards back out!

The week ended with a free movie and popcorn event!  Thirty-one students came and watched the movie, Matilda, based off of a Roald Dahl book.  The library was transformed into a mini movie theater, using all of the different flexible seating options available.  

Week one was a huge success! If you would like to stay informed on future Woonsocket Community Library events this summer, please like the Woonsocket Community Library page on Facebook, or stop in to pick up a summer calendar! We will see you there!
