The Chappaqua Library offers summer reading programs for all ages. The children's room at the library offers a summer reading program themed, "One World, Many Stories", where children learn about different culture, customs and meet new people. The Teen Zone offers a reading program as well which offers events and prizes geared towards young adults while the adult summer reading program is open to those ages 18 and older.
The children's summer reading program offers 17 events at the library throughout the summer to encourage multiculturalism and exploration. The children's room will have conversations in French on Tuesdays in July and in Spanish on Thursday in July. International Folk Dancing, Origami and other great events are offered at the library. Please visit children's librarian Miriam Lang Budin to sign up for the children's summer reading program.
The teen summer reading program also offers terrific events with more technology involved. "We have teens sign up online starting June 1 and then they can write reviews to be entered for prizes," said teens librarian Zahra "Z" Baird.
"We let them use their Kindles and Nooks and then do a book swap with them so they can find out about new books."
The Teen Zone summer reading programs offers 16 programs of its own, like Chip N Chat, where students meet to talk about books, movies, music and eat snacks, or a Teen Scrabble Tournament, which takes place Tuesday, June 28 from 7 to 10 p.m.
The Chappaqua Library also offers an adult summer reading program where members have informal book discussions and free screenings of foreign films on select fridays throughout the summer.
