Terrific Tuesday: Summer Reading and Bookmark Making

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

2:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Reading is fun, but reading in the forest among friends is even more fun.  Join the Greenbelt Educators for a read-aloud of a non-fiction and a fiction book about nature. Then decorate a nature-themed bookmark for your summer reading and into the school year. Afterwards, enjoy silent reading of a nature book of your own, or borrow one of ours, then cool down with an optional run through the lawn sprinklers. Free program suitable for ages 4-8.  Registration required.
