What do stars, planets, and galaxies far and beyond have to do with the library? If you love astronomy, enjoy reading and like prizes, TONS! The annual Summer Reading Challenge at Chandler Public Library starts June 1, 2019 and runs through August 1, 2019. This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories.”
The theme focuses on space exploration in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. Visit your library for special space-related programs including:
“All About Stars!” Star Party - a kick-off event for all ages in front of Hamilton Library, June 1 at 7:00 p.m.
Young Authors Club - for teens and tweens at Basha Library, Tuesdays June 4 - July 2 at 2:00 p.m.
Are We Alone in the Universe? - a presentation for adults on UFOs at Sunset Library, July 13 at 10:30 a.m. (registration opens on June 15)
Check our events calendar for a full schedule of activities.
In addition to promoting positive community-building, each participant - regardless of age - is challenged to read for 1,000 minutes during the summer months and track those minutes online. Tracking forms will also be available for children to easily see their reading progress, then log your children’s minutes online or bring the forms in to the library and our teen volunteers can assist. All program participants will be able to enter a drawing for raffle prizes, including a telescope for school-age children. You can create your online account now and start entering your minutes beginning June 1.
We look forward to reading with you this summer!
