Also, if your child is in the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, (If they aren't, we definitely encourage you to do so!) you can still register your child in the summer reading program by 'adding a new child' and submitting the same info for your child. Once registered you can log the same book at one time for both programs! 

If logging individual books isn't something you want to do, You can bring a list of your books to a librarian and we can bulk add your books to your account!

Wednesday Shows:

The library will be hosting performers each week with fantastic shows! These programs tend to be geared towards K-6th grade, but we would love for everyone to participate. Out of safety concerns, we ask that you please sit with your little ones during the program. Check out more information below!

Craft Days:

During the month of July on Wednesdays at 2pm at the Chelsea Community Center, we will be hosting craft activities. These crafts will be for Kindergarten and up only due to safety concerns. We will have coloring pages available for anyone under 5yrs to do while your older kids create our craft for that day. 

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten:

Why not knock out two programs at one time? With read squared you can log one book for both programs at one time! We encourage all young readers to enroll in this program as it is proven to increase children's literacy before entering Kindergarten. Find out more info HERE!
