Press Release 5/28/2020 – Summer Reading Program: Imagine Your Story
The Alamosa Public Library is pleased to announce that the Summer Reading Program (SRP) begins on June 1. The SRP has been a staple of the library’s children’s programming for many years, and while pandemic modifications have been made, the library staff is committed to continue the tradition of bringing engaging and creative literacy enrichment to our community. SRP performances in Cole Park have been put on hold until further notice, but the Read-for-Beads program will go on with some added hands-on challenges and projects. Online Registration is open and will continue all summer at alamosalibrary.org. Programming runs June 1- July 31.
The theme this summer is “Imagine Your Story” and centers around fables, fairytales, folklore, and legends. While many may be staying close to home this summer, readers can go anywhere using their imagination!
Programming in June and July includes:
- Find Larry the Library Gnome
- Weekly Literacy Enrichment Challenges & Project Packs
- Raffle Prizes
- Virtual performances from beloved past performers as well as new
