Summer Reading Club Recap!

The Kids Summer Reading Club just wrapped up another amazing summer!  This summer's theme was Fizz, Boom, Read and it exceeded all of our expectations.  Our programs included awesome sciencetelling, astronaut training, "Eureka" moments in science, a puppet show, crafts, experiments, a production of Alice in Wonderland, a musician, a one-man circus, and Librarians getting slimed!  We had 929 children participating and they read over 16,000 books!!  Our fabulous readers smashed their original goal of 10,000 books with several weeks left to spare.  Bravo!  Hopefully there were some inspired budding young scientists this summer.  We might have the next Einstein right here in Cape May County!

The Children's Department wants to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of the families and children that participated in making this summer great!  We are honored to work with such wonderful young people and to see them grow each  year.  Hope to see all of your smiling faces next summer!!
