The Patten Free Library will kick off the 2022 Summer Reading Program: Oceans of Possibilities, on Friday, June 17. This program is open to year-round and summer residents of all ages residing in Arrowsic, Bath, Georgetown, West Bath, and Woolwich, and/or for any RSU1 student. Read to earn prizes and participate in exciting events including music, puppet shows, art and cooking classes, science programs, storytimes, and more.
“The Children’s Room is so excited to invite the community to the Oceans of Possibilities 2022 Summer Reading Program,” says Head of Children’s Services Katy Dodge, “We have over a dozen live and in person events planned, and we are thrilled to partner with Renys Department store to offer this year’s Summer Reading prize for all participants who read at least 15 minutes per day.”
Studies have shown that reading just 15 minutes a day can have staggering positive effects in many different aspects of the reader’s life, including knowledge, empathy and personal well-being. “Dive in” to Summer Reading and see what books can do for you!
