Strawberry Social and Summer Reading Kickoff

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Strawberry Social and Summer Reading Kickoff 10AM-2PM

On Saturday, June 15, the Kellogg-Hubbard Library invites community members to celebrate the start of summer with live performances and $5 strawberry shortcake on the Library lawn! From 10AM-2PM, kids and adults sign up for Summer Reading for their chance to win prizes in August. Enjoy live family music, fun crafts and activities, fundraising book sale, and an all-ages circus workshop!

Performances include family music from Emmett & Fiona at 10am, followed by family rock from Montpelier musician Chris Buckridge at 11AM. At 12PM, Rob Crites will give a circus performance followed by a skills workshop for all to join.

This event will see the re-opening of the Library’s beloved fundraising book sale in the first floor Reading Room. People’s Health and Wellness will be offering free blood pressure checks and information about their services. Activities include sidewalk chalk, face paint, glow-in-the-dark temporary tattoos, and a Father’s Day craft in the Children’s Library.

The first 200 kids to sign up for the Summer Reading program will receive a free Mountaineers ticket! Completing the Summer Reading program earns treasure items and raffle tickets for various fun prizes to be drawn at our end-of-summer party on August 21. Adults who complete the Adult Summer Reading Bingo Challenge will be entered to win a weekend getaway courtesy of Bent Apple Farm.

Come out to support the Library, enjoy delicious strawberries from the Hunger Mountain Co-op, listen to family music and have fun!
