Registration is now underway for the Palmyra Community Library’s wide range of summer reading activities for all ages from babies to adults.  

The children’s program, Dig Into Reading, includes weekly story times for babies and toddlers, preschool story times, art classes for school age children, fishing at the marina and a stuffed animal campout. Families can enjoy special events such as the Gravitational Bull juggling show, an Erie Canal walk, performances by the Wondermakers storytellers and Moreland the Magician, an owl watch at the cemetery, the Wildlife Defenders program and more.

The teen program, Beneath the Surface, is for those in middle school and up.  Teens are invited to make root beer floats and chocolate fondues, learn the art of Zentangle, volunteer at library programs or take a Red Cross babysitting course. Participants can also enter weekly prize drawings and be eligible for the grand prize of a Kindle.

Adults who sign up for Groundbreaking Reads will receive a free tote bag (while supplies last) and learn how to enter weekly prize drawings including the grand prize drawing for a Kindle. A genealogy class, taught by Betsy Lewis, is scheduled for Thursday, July 25 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Freelance writer Camy Sorbello will offer a two-session workshop on reading and writing memoirs on Wednesday, July 10 and 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
