School is on the horizon! But before it gets here, come to the library to get ready. There are a lot of these backpacks available--they all include a bag of supplies (a pack of construction paper, crayons, safety scissors, glue stick, alphabet foam stickers, play doh), several books (different books in each pack), and a folder of helpful activities. All I need from you is the child's first name and the town you live in. Please get a backpack and help a kid get started :)

The Seabrook Library Children's Room has just finished "On Your Mark, Get Set...READ!"--the 2016 summer reading program. The kids read 693 hours! It's been a busy, active summer and we've had so much help! So much appreciation is due to the following: Rotary Club of Hampton, whose generous donation brought both the Children's Museum of NH and Jerry Schneider's butterflies to the library; Bob's Discount Furniture, whose gift helped fund the reading prizes; Topsfield Fair, who gave prizes and a craft program; Captain's Cove Adventure Golf who offered free passes as prizes; Noodles & Co., who offered noodle bowls as prizes; the Community Center who hosted a fantastic mixer. There were a lot of people who helped out in many ways--usually pitching in at programs to help serve treats, assist with kids' crafts, or even cleaning up: Beth, Dennis, Breezy, Kiki, Anna, Bobby, Jay, Adele and I'm sure there are many more I'm forgetting (I'm sorry--I really do appreciate ALL of you!). Thank you to everyone who helped make summer reading happen!
