The Windsor Public Library is coming off a successful summer of programming activities for area children and young adults.
The library says that the theme for the Summer of 2013 was “GO” and all the fun officially launched on Monday, July 8 at 2 pm at Central Library with face painting by Allison Martin from Painted Smiles Productions, a clown workshop and stilt walking with Mark Lefebvre from The Stilt Guys and other activities including a craft and storytime.
“Once again this year, thousands of Windsor children participated in WPL Summer Programs, which are designed to acquaint them with the wide variety of resources and services Windsor Public Library offers – all free of charge,” says WPL Public Service Manager Bonita Seecharan.
Summer program highlights included Go to the Fire Station, where firefighters from Windsor Fire & Rescue went to all branches with their fire truck to read stories and explain fire safety; ERCA presents Go To The Pond For A Wildlife Adventure. Children discovered the wild creatures that live in ponds through an adventure story, scavenger hunt, catching and viewing pond bugs under a microscope, and making a dragonfly craft; and Go Windsor! Book participants contributed their writing and artwork toward a 56-page book, the launch of which is planned for later in September at Remington Park Library.
