Children entering grades third through fifth in September are invited to “Leap Into Reading,” the Howland Public Library’s summer book club on Wednesdays from 3 to 4:30 p.m. between July 9 and Aug. 13.

Using a book of their own choosing, from the library or home, students will use the English Arts & Literacy skills that they are working on in school to have fun discovering character development, plots, conclusions, and new words. Former teacher, Linda Stevens will help students discover the enjoyment of reading through group discussions, crafts, games, and other activities that will enhance the learning and fun.

Space is limited, so please register with Ginny Figlia, head of youth services, at [email protected] or 845-831-1134, ext.103. Check out the calendar at for a listing of summer youth programs.
