Summer program clues kids into joy of reading

A summer reading program about super sleuths and daring detectives called “Got a Clue” is now underway at the Nevada County Library. It’s dynamic, lots of fun and effective for preschool through school-age children. Reading games, prize drawings and a log with stickers to chart each child’s reading journey are all part of this series.

The kick-off event is a performance by a magician on Friday, June 22. Four detective workshops start on June 26, a show with the wildly popular Swazzle Puppeteers takes place on July 10, and the program ends with celebration parties July 25 that star the dynamic multicultural music group Colibri! – so mark your calendars.

All programs are free of charge, thanks to the Friends of the Nevada County Libraries. Go online at (paste this URL into your browser), or call (530) 265-1538. Also, check the Prospector calendar for the library’s listing that gives details on each event.

In addition to the events taking place at the Grass Valley and Madelyn Helling libraries, events are also happening at Penn Valley Station and Bear River Station.

What a great way for children to learn while having fun!
