Come enjoy the antics of juggler/beatboxer/comedian Jester Jim and celebrate your summer of reading with the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library on Wednesday, August 12 at 7 PM. This is a drop-in program for families with children ages 3 and up.

Beginning Monday, July 20, 2015 at 10:00 AM Tadpole Readers who have met or exceeded the challenge to read 300 minutes over a minimum of 25 days can collect their 2015 awards: a certificate of completion, a book from the Summer Reader Rewards Collection and a super hero finger puppet.

Join us for a midsummer celebration of things heroic on Thursday, July 23 at 7 pm when singer/songwriter, instrumentalist extraordinaire Tom Sieling performs his show "Howl at the Moon with a Hero Tune."

Remember, even if you've reached the 300 minute goal, keep on reading! Come to the Library and talk about books you've read and restock your book supply.

Tadpole Readers is a fun, easy way to develop your child's pre-reading skills while you relax together over books. It is an ideal approach for nurturing a lifelong love of reading and libraries.

Each day a child and partner read for 15 minutes or more, update this electronic log OR mark the reading record provided with your Tadpole registration and come to the Library to have our teens or staff record your reading times online.
Come to the Library, talk about a book and enter to win a book in our weekly raffle and visit the Tadpole Treasure Chest. When you complete 300 minutes of reading, come in and choose a book from our selection of entertaining and award winning books.

The Tadpole Readers program ends Sunday, August 30, 2015.
