News from the kids room

We are so excited to be able to bring this one-of-a-kind comic book workshop to the kids of Stratham!

Here's how it works:
- Register for the program ahead of time.
- We'll send you the Zoom meeting link on July 8th (the day of the workshop).
- Beginning at 1:15 pm, kids will log on to the Zoom meeting to learn all about creating their own comic book! Marek Bennett will facilitate this awesome event, drawing along with all the participants. This first part of the event is a live virtual comic book class.
- Around 2:15, participants will be encouraged to do independent drawing and writing, with Marek available for questions and guidance.
- The whole group will reconvene around 3:00 to share what they've worked on (if they want), get help and advice from Marek, and celebrate their own awesome comics!

Kids, Teens and Adults can all sign up and begin our fun Summer Reading Program!

This year we're using a program called ReadSquared, where you can track your reading, earn fun badges, play games, and even win prizes!

Visit ReadSquared website, or download their app & get started!

We also have our reading bingo boards again to give you a little reading inspiration. Print your own  or we'll include one with any kids books you check out a curbside.

We are checking out around 150 items every week for curbside lending -- and it's growing! How can you get books from the library? Place your hold in our catalog ( and we'll call you when your items are ready!

Each Monday we'll be on FB Live with another camptastic craft for you to do along with us for the Children's Summer Reading Program! Most materials are easily found around the house, but we'll also be providing materials in take-home kits that will be available beginning June 15th.
