Woonsocket Library kicks off summer reading

Another station for the library summer reading program kick-off was a drawing session in the Woonsocket gym. Woonsocket’s Pre-K teacher, Karen Jackson, worked at teaching the kids how to draw an animated cow with simple lines.

On Monday, June 7, the Woonsocket Community Library kicked off their summer reading program “Tails and Tales” with a fun event in coordination with the Sanborn County 4-H clubs. Ninety kids are registered for this summer’s library reading program that runs through the months of June and July.

Those that attended the kick-off event were treated to a noon meal. At 1 p.m., the attendees were broken into groups that took turns at each of the five stations over the course of two hours. The animal theme was a central part of the event stations. The station in the Woonsocket science classroom included coloring a tote to carry books. The station in the gymnasium was led by preschool teacher Karen Jackson as she showed the kids how to draw a horse and a cow. The station in the commons area included coloring an animal themed bookmark. The in-library station involved finding and checking out books to take home. The final station was a petting zoo set up outside. Members of the Sanborn County 4-H clubs brought animals for the kids to pet and learn about. The animals included dogs, cats, chickens, alpacas, horses, goats, a lamb, and even a baby raccoon.
