Visit Public Library To Join Summer Reading Program

The Seattle Public Library’s 2015 Summer of Learning for youth and families kicks has started and runs through September 10th.

The closest library to sign up is the Northeast Branch at 6801 35th Avenue NE.

The information says:
The program is designed to keep young people reading and learning while school is out. This year’s program features the theme “Wild Science!” and encourages reading and activities around science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
Children, teens and parents of children up to age 5 are invited to come into any Library location to pick up a free booklet filled with fun, brain-building games and activities that support early learning.   and another booklet for ages 7-12 filled with science experiments, games, puzzles and activities, as well as a guide to hundreds of fun, free programs. 
Participants also can fill out a survey to get two free tickets (while supplies last) to Woodland Park Zoo on Friday, Sept. 11, Saturday, Sept. 12 or Sunday, Sept. 13.  
The Library offers summer programming to mitigate the summer slide and teaches children and teens learning skills, such as teamwork, critical thinking and digital skills. 
Children and teens may also sign up for multi-day classes where they can learn to build robots, create video games, use Legos for stop motion animation, sketch wildlife biology and more.
