East Greenbush Community Library Programs & Reference Services
EAST GREENBUSH – Summer Reading Challenge: Imagine Your Story June 15 – August 14
Can a community celebrate summer reading in the midst of closures and social distancing? East Greenbush sure can! We’re happy to announce that the library’s child, teen, and adult summer reading challenges are gearing up as we speak, and while there are some necessary changes to how the programs are conducted this year, we think you’ll find plenty to do and lots to enjoy.
*New* this year is Beanstack — an online program that allows participants of all ages to track their reading, complete fun challenges, and earn badges and prizes! This year’s prizes will focus on supporting our local businesses, stay tuned for details. Visit our website at eglibrary.org for specific information about the different challenges being offered, including a traditional paper reading record for those who prefer offline.
Farmers’ Market opens Wednesday, June 10th, 4-7pm.
