Kids Summer Reading!

   This year the library is introducing a NEW Summer Reading Game for kids entering grades K‐7! You are eligible to WIN UP TO 4 PRIZES throughout the summer until August 22. Instead of minutes read, this time we are counting full books that you read and record on the computer program, either from home or from here at the library.
   After you have collected all your prizes, continue to log in the titles of the books you read until August 22 and you may come to the library to get a print out of your reading list to give your teacher on the first day of school.
   This reading game is part of the Governor's Summer Reading Challenge Program and is supported by the CT State Library as well as the Brooklyn Town Library. Good luck to all of you. Remember to have fun and READ this summer!


NECT Farmer's Market

   The Friends Of the Library will be representing at the Farmer's Market outside Ocean State Job Lot again this year! Scheduled appearances on July 16, August 20, September 17 and (weather permitting) October 15: come and get the best baked goodies in town!

Our Newest, Crazy, Hang-Upside-Down, Animated Fun-Stop for the Kids... TumbleBooks!

    Check out this top notch collection of animated, talking picture books (with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles), Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), Math Stories, Videos (from National Geographics). We think you will also love TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books and Tumble Puzzles & Games.
    TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which are licensed from children's book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.

    TumbleBooks has a special Graphic Novel Summer Reading Program and we have granted you access, on us. Please note, some material not appropriate for younger children, just what every teenager wants to hear, right? Ok, now check it out and tell us what you think!
