Summer Reading Challenge
Powhatan County Public Schools has partnered with the Powhatan County Public Library and the Virginia Cooperative Extension Office to offer Imagine Your Story, a Summer Learning Challenge. This program provides a variety of activities for PK-5th grade readers while maintaining safety and social distancing. Participants may register by visiting www.powhatanlibrary.net linked here and clicking the “Summer Learning Registration” button. Summer Learning runs through August 31st and participants can earn chances to win a summer prize raffle all summer long.
Children can complete activities on the Summer Learning Challenge choice boards throughout the summer. A new choice board is available every month! Monthly Summer Learning Challenge Kits for children ages 2-12 may be picked up from the library beginning June 15. Each kit contains a new book, materials, and instructions for art and science projects, as well as additional enrichment activities. Summer Learning Challenge Kits help battle “summer slide” by encouraging children to find the joy of reading and provide opportunities for children to build their own library. Kits are made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Powhatan Library, the Powhatan Extension Office, and the Powhatan County Public Schools elementary Parent Teacher Organizations. Future kits will be available on July 13 and August 3. Kits will also be distributed from both Feeding Powhatan and Powhatan Food Bank each month. Contactless pick up of Summer Learning Kits may be arranged by calling the library at 598-5670. All kits are available while supplies last.
We hope you can join us for a summer filled with learning and fun!
