Library staff have been working very hard to bring Summer Reading to our children! We have compiled 4 fun, interactive, educational "kits" into one easy  "go bag" available at your local Library!  Each kit includes stories, crafts, art projects and activities to be lead by Library staff from Markleeville and Bear Valley in a live, online session. Themes include:

  • Exploring Nature

  • Exploring Healthy Living and Eating

  • Exploring Hidden Treasure

  • Exploring Art

One final session will wrap up the program and allow children to share their favorite creations and activities--and discuss their favorite stories!

* Dates and Times TBA.  Please call the Library with questions (or to reserve a space.)

2020 Summer of Learning!

We're doing things a little differently this year... Due to current circumstances, the Library is unable to offer a traditional in-person Summer Reading Program this year. However, we recognize the importance of keeping kids engaged during the "summer slide." Our solution is Summer of Learning at the Library! Check back here every Tuesday for a weekly dose of engaging educational content to keep your child's brain active all summer long! (And for very young children be sure to check our Story Time and craft videos posted to ourFacebook page on Saturdays!)
