Kicking off our Summer Reading Program at Mattapoisett Library will be a participatory outdoor concert for the whole family. Davis Bates and Roger Tinknell, two award-winning musicians and storytellers. will be hosting a concert, “Tails and Tales,” on Tuesday, July 6, at 6:30 pm. Come down to the library to celebrate nature, reading, animals, and community! Please bring a chair or blanket. This event is funded in part by a grant from the Mattapoisett Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
In addition to our summer concert, Mattapoisett Library is hosting many programs for all ages. Tuesday mornings at 10:30 am is our Puppet and Acting Workshop for children 10 and up and their families. Registration is required. Wednesday afternoons at 3:00 pm, join us at the library for Pop-up Crafts and Activities for all ages. Thursday mornings at 10:30 am is our Sensory Center for our younger patrons with interactive activities and bubbles, of course. Friday mornings at 10:30 am, join our traditional story time with Miss Chris.
In addition, we have an ongoing reading challenge for children ages 0-12. Children will track the minutes they read, receive up to 12 animal figurines for each hour they read, and be entered in a raffle for crafts, books, and ice cream.
We have lots of other special programs coming up including a nature hike with the Mattapoisett Land Trust on July 23, petting zoo on July 31, and end of summer party on August 6.
