Summer Learning Program

Oceans of Possibilities logoThe 2022 Summer Learning Program "Oceans of Possibilities" runs from May 28th - August 13th!  Join us for fun events, terrific prizes, and great stories for all ages!  There are programs for children, teens, and adults.

 

HOW TO REGISTER:

  • Register in-person at the library or online.  Pre-registration opens May 1st.  Pick up your bag of materials (including instructions, Bingo cards, all other paperwork, and for children a free museum pass) at the John Graham Library beginning May 28th.  The paperwork can also be downloaded from this page (see below).

PRIZES:

  • Decide on a weekly reading goal (books or minutes) when you register.  You'll receive a weekly incentive prize every time you meet your goal, up to 5 times during the summer.  A Grand Prize drawing with exciting prizes will be held at the end of the summer.  You can earn chances by attending library events, checking out books, and for each square you complete on your Library Bingo card.  See the prize list below!  

EVENTS:

  • Fun special events will be held throughout the summer for all ages!  See the flyers below or the library's Events calendar.  The first events are a Cumberland County Master Gardeners plant clinic on May 28th and a visit from real live search and rescue dogs on June 10th!

GET OUTDOORS (GO) CUMBERLAND:

  • Take part in the inaugural GO Cumberland program!  Fifteen "anchors" - wooden posts with a unique etching attached - are hidden in local and state parks in Cumberland County.  Visit the GO Cumberland website to see the Wayfinder with directions to each park and hike.  (A limited supply of printed copies of the Wayfinder are available at the library while supplies last, and are restricted to one per family.)  Rubbing sheets are available at the library to record your discoveries.  Write down the 4-digit code on the anchor.  Enter it in the Beanstack app to receive credit for the hike, or visit the library front desk and we'll record it for you.  You can earn a prize or chances in the GO Cumberland prize drawing!  GO Cumberland runs from June 1st to August 15.
