Summer Reading Preview

Summer is just around the corner and with it the annual Summer Reading Program at the Newport Public Library! This year's theme is "Be Creative @ Your Library" and will celebrate everything arts-related including music, dance, theater, photography, culinary arts and much, much more!

To celebrate the arts, the Newport Public Library is hosting an imaginary Carnival of Creativity. When you register for the program you will receive a map of the carnival which includes suggestions for different activities you can do to explore your creativity. To complete the program, you'll need to read 6 books, log the titles of those books in a reading log, and complete at least 2 activities in 2 different areas of the carnival - see the map for details.

The program officially kicks off on Tuesday, June 30th with a craft program for children ages 4 - 8 and continues through August 13th. During that time we will be having lots of entertainers and special programs for kids so be sure and check the Summer Reading calendar and website for details.

Sign up now by visiting the Children's Department or calling 401-847-8720 ext. 204. In the coming weeks you will also be able to sign up online so stay tuned for that. If you have any questions, feel free to comment on this post or visit us at the library!
