Pack your bags to travel the globe this summer as the Woodland Public Library presents “One World, Many Stories” during its Summer Reading Club for kids.
Children will explore places from Albuquerque to Zaire through stories, crafts, music, dance and other activities. The 2011 Summer Reading Club is open to young people, preschoolers through teens, with programs, prize drawings, story times and more.
Families are invited to join the “Read to me!” portion of the program for toddlers.
Registration begins Monday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Summer Reading Club kickoff party. Visitors are invited to sign up for the club, pick up a goodie bag, enjoy a story read aloud and get creative with crafts!
Those who can’t attend that day may sign up anytime afterward at the children’s desk in the library.
Mark your calendars:
* Tuesday, June 28, 1:30-2:30 p.m.: Go Wild! Meet real wild animals;
