Summer Service Workshop: Literature Inspiring Service

Tuesday, July 18, 2017, 09:00am - 12:00pm

Summer Service Collage Unedited 

Monday, July 17-Friday, July 21 9am-12pm

Help Pequot Library "Build a Better World" during this new summer workshop! This week long half-day program teaches kids the value of service to others through stories, games, and projects. Kids will discover that they have the power to make a difference in their local and global communities through small acts of kindness. Each day kids will learn about a new country and the children who live there. Service projects include: painting and packaging blanket kits for hospitals, boxing books for shipping to schools, providing notes of love, creating a shoebox of school supplies, and making toys like jump ropes, pick-up sticks, cat's cradles, and ribbon dancers for distribution. Includes a daily snack time and Around the World Frisbee break!

Workshop led by:
Wonderland BookSavers, a 501c3 group which has donated over 140,000 books to 500,000 kids in 14 countries across 3 continents. This organization is primarily run by kids under the age of 18, and was originally started at Pequot Library!
