Summer Activities for Kids


There are many opportunities for kids being offered at the Sidney Library this summer. Our staff will offer:

  • hand-on science program for grades K-3 on Tuesdays

  • science experiments for grades 4-6 on Wednesdays
  • movies on Thursdays

In addition, regular children’s programs like lapsit, toddler story time, and preschool story time will all continue.

Kids will also be able to join our Independent Summer Reading Program and earn a free book for every 300 minutes of reading. More information will come in future newsletters (available at the library) and on our website.
