SYDNEY’S GREEN GARDEN KICKS OFF SUMMER AT CLOQUET PUBLIC LIBRARY
Sydney’s Green Garden of Duluth kicks off summer at the Cloquet Public Library at 1 p.m., Wed., June 5, by showing children how to plant a garden that they will tend throughout the summer. The garden is part of the Library’s “Dig into Reading” program of activities, including a reading challenge.
Children will be able to boost their reading skills by participating in the annual reading challenge. All children are eligible, and preschoolers will receive credit for books read aloud to them. Children read at their own reading levels and receive incentives along the way. Participants can register online by going to the Youth page on the library’s website (www.cloquet.lib.mn.us) or by filling out a reading log.
Additional fun will include a program on dinosaurs by the St. Paul Science Museum, a visit from the Minnesota Zoo, how to make a Worm Motel, Gopher Games, Dirt Detectives, nature story times, scavenger hunts, “Where’s Jeffrey?” and a Kids’ Game Card with drawings for prizes. Every child who registers for the reading challenge will receive a free packet of information and fun activity items. The program officially begins June 3, but registration is ongoing throughout the summer. For more information, call 879-1531.
