The Northumberland Public Library, Northumberland Elementary School (NES) and the Northumberland Family YMCA have teamed up to present a Summer Reading Program.
When NES students reach this summer’s goal of 13,751, they will have read a total of 40,000 books since 2016, said children’s librarian Marilyn Smith.
The “Libraries Rock” music-themed programs will continue weekly until August 8 at the library. Read to the Beat story time is 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 25.
The YMCA will host a special picnic and pool party beginning at 10:30 a.m. July 27. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
