Summer Learning at TCPL!

Our world may be very different these days, but some things will stay the same  -- and the fun and value of learning throughout this summer is one of them!

Join TCPL as we launch our virtual Summer Learning programs June 27 through August 8.  We have programs for all ages, so the whole family can participate!

Pre-reader and Kindergarten through 5th grade programs:


1.    Get a Pre-reader game sheet and early literacy tips or a Kindergarten through 5th grade sheet!  

2.    Write your names and contact information on the front of the sheet.

3.    Complete as many of the challenges as you can.

4.    Return this sheet to the Tompkins County Public Library by August 8. You can also email a picture of your sheet to Kate at kdevoe@tcpl.org. Participants who turn their sheets in will receive a FREE BOOK & a chance to win a prize in our raffle!


The pre-reader and K-5 summer programs are made possible by a grant from the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund of Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
