Summer Programming for 2020! Children ages 6-11

A ‘Monster’ of a Story!

Please read carefully: All programs hosted by the Quechee Library will be outside on the Quechee Green on Tuesdays at 4pm.

 

Reading Contracts are now  available VIRTUALLY!

Just click on this link and you will find a form to fill where you can keep track of all the reading you do this summer! NOTE: you will need an email address to sign in, but you can use an adult’s email (mom, dad, caregiver, grandma, grandpa, etc)

ALL programs will require pre-registration for on-site participation. ALL programs will be filmed and posted to our Quechee Library YouTube channel the following morning. Children wishing to participate virtually can call ahead of time to request materials needed for any craft or activity for a specific program that week.

Quechee Library Programs:

Tues June 30: The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Listen to the story of this famous French monster, followed by a structural engineering activity with Tim Schaal: build a load bearing bridge—similar in structure to the self supporting roof of a cathedral.: long span with light weight materials supporting a  (large) load.

Tues July 7:  Frankenstein: Electrified!  Explore the history behind the story of Frankenstein and his creator Mary Shelly. Learn about Electrical Parties in the 1800s. Make potato batteries!

Tues July 14:  Interactive storytelling with Jools Skeet. Help Jools weave a unique story through audience participation. Even virtually you’ll be able to grab something out of her bag of tricks!

Tues July 21: Dracula: The lore of vampires is based on historical observations of dead bodies….. We’ll talk arteries, blood types and real-life (animal ) vampires. ‘Sink your teeth’ into making a  blood model!

Tues July 28: Witches, Trolls , Bears AND Manners?  How DO you get others to cooperate with you? Start with some basic good manners and you may be able to even convince monsters to do your bidding. We’ll play manners games, set the table and work on a ‘feeling bored’ list.

Saturday August 1, 1pm at the Wilder Club & Library:

MIMEALOT: The show includes mime and magic illusions, balloon wizardry, and lots of laughs.

This is our end-of summer celebration. There will be prizes for summer readers with a contract and ice cream on the porch of the Wilder Club & Library.  Pre-registration required.

 

Come Dance at the Wilder Club & Library on Tuesdays at 10am!

Tuesday June 30 and July 7th: Dance with Ashley Browning

Pre-registration required

A narrative-based summer library program, with the intention of helping boys and girls to tell and see stories through movement. All programs are very interactive (as opposed to performance-based) and are meant to be as inclusive as possible.

Sessions will be recorded and posted on the Quechee Library YouTube channel. Come to 1 or come to all!
