    Amherst Library Programs

    Avoid the “Summer Slide”---keep your kids reading all summer long!

    From June 17 to August 9, we’ll be providing a wonderful variety of activities:  science workshops, crafts, storytimes, movies, and of course—lots and lots of books for READING!!  Children will be encouraged to keep their “reading muscles” strong by working their way through this year’s reading log, earning stickers, books and prizes along the way.

    A Universe of Stories is the theme this summer in the Children’s Room at the Amherst Town Library. The 2019 Summer Reading materials will be available as soon as school is out and activities and events will kick off on Monday, June 17.  The program will run for eight weeks, and will culminate on Friday, August 9th with an Ice Cream Social at the Congregational Church. 

    As in the past, our young participants will keep a reading log and will chart the time they spend reading, with stops along the way to earn stickers, free books, and prizes. Our babies will be earning stickers every time they attend the Little Listeners program. Parents of registered readers will also have a chance to win gift certificates to local restaurants.  There will be many interesting programs offered for kids, teens, and adults, too, so make sure to visit the library often, no matter what your age! 

    Our first special program of the summer will take place on Thursday, June 20 at 10:30amTOE JAM PUPPET BAND will be here and you won’t want to miss the wild and crazy fun with Mr. Tom and Mr. Vinny!!  They'll entertain kids and adults alike with their blend of music, puppets, and just plain silliness--- Bring the whole family for an exciting morning!!!  This program is most fun for kids ages 4 and up.  No registration is required.

    Have Fun, Make Friends, See New Things

    For over 80 years, Cub Scouts have been having the time of their lives making new friends and learning new things in an environment designed to help them succeed. From building their own pinewood derby® car to learning how to roast the perfect marshmallow with their best friends at a family campout, your child will LOVE being a Cub Scout. So if she or he is in kindergarten through fifth grades, or 5 to 10 years old, then their Adventure is Calling to have some fun with the Cub Scouts.

    How About an Adventure?

    Boy Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they've been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they've never gone, seeing things they've never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible.Sound fun? If you're a boy age 11, or at least 10 and have completed the fifth grade, to 17 years old, the time for a real adventure is now.
