Packet for children ages 3 through 7             Packet for children ages 8 through 12

Although not required for packet completion, attendance at each of our in-person programs on Tuesdays in July counts as an elective activity towards completion of the activity packet. Join Captain Michael at 1 PM for an hour of stories, crafts, and activities on July 5, 12, 19, and 26 at the library.

When you have accumulated the required number of points for your age on the required number of pages, bring your packet to the library between July 1 and August 13, and receive your prize. You must pick up your prize at Newport Public Library. The Prize for a completed packet is a brand new book, compliments of the Perry Valley Grange, and a free pass to Butcher’s Family Fun Farm. We extend our thanks to the Perry Valley Grange, Butcher’s Farm Market, and to the Friends of Newport Public Library for sponsoring our Summer Reading Challenge for many, many years.
