SRP Special Events

  Summer Reading Program Special Events:  Wednesdays, JUNE 20-AUGUST 15 from 2:30-3:15    

July 18: Mad Science: Jangala Book:  Mad Science will guide kids’ imaginations by taking them through the jungle!  The Sanskrit word, “jangala,” is the origin of the word, “jungle,” a dense region within a tropical rainforest that receives lots of direct sunlight.  We will explore the jungle by listening to sounds, discovering creatures, and experimenting with the chemical elements found in some plants and insects.

July 25: Amazing Dana:  Come be amazed by the magical prowess of Amazing Dana!  The program includes audience participation and comedy.

August 1:  Marine Mammal ID:  Learn about seals, whales, dolphins and more!  Plus, meet local marine scientists and get a close-up look at some preserved specimens.  Presented by World Below the Waves.

August 8, 2:30-3:30: Literature Comes to Life:  Children from the audience will have a chance to act out Whale Is Stuck: An Arctic Adventure, a storybook written by Karen Hayles. Stacey Wein, teacher and children’s theater actress, provides expert direction and luxurious costumes.  A fun way for kids to build confidence and oral skills!

August 15: Hullabaloo:  Come listen to quality music the whole family can enjoy!  You’ll hear traces of twang, funk, rock, folk and blues in Hullabaloo’s songs.  Kids will be inspired to laugh, think, sing, dance, clap and stomp their feet.  This is our final Summer Reading Program show!  Please be sure to pick up a Fall Events calendar, and continue to join us for other fun programs. This year’s Summer Reading Program, Reading Takes You Everywhere!,  runs from June 1-August 1.  Sign up to win prizes at SRP, 2018.
