KIDS

This year, the Youth Services department is offering a summer learning program similar to ones we have had in the past. The program will run from June 12-August 12. It will be broken up into age groups.The two younger groups will complete activities based on the Ages and Stages developmental research and the two older groups will track minutes read.

There are three age-specific prizes (registration, midway, and completion) that can be earned along with raffle prizes awarded at the end.

Raffle prize winners will be selected at the end of summer; they do not need to finish the program to win a raffle prize. BUT the more activities completed, the more tickets they will earn and increase their chance of winning.

The Beanstack app and/or website will be used to track progress and direct raffle tickets. If you encounter issues logging, please come in to YS or contact us and we can help. Prizes will be picked up in person this summer from the YS desk. If you have any questions, email us at youthservices@zblibrary.org or call (847) 872-4680 ext 5.
