Summer Reading Program 2021

Clothespin Chicken Instructions

  1. Cut the egg along the zig-zag line.
  2. Peel back a portion of the paper on the back of the foam egg and adhere it to the clothespin.
  3. Take the yellow square, trace your thumb or finger and cut out. Add some eyes and a beak.
  4. Peel off the back of the foam tape on the clothespin and put on your chicken. Make sure your chicken is more towards the opening of your clothespin so you will be able to see it when you open your clothespin.

Reading Begins June 5th

Friday Programs are at 1:00 pm on June 11, 18, 25 and July 9 & 16

  6. Children 8 and under must attend with an adult.

*Prize drawings will be held at the final program on July 19.
