Summer Reading Program

Build a Better World at the Windsor Public Library!  We are excited to offer a wide range of program for both children and adults! 
Children's Programs
Reading logs will be available after June 10th.  Keep track of the number of books you read or the amount of time you spend reading.  Visit the library and fill out a "book spine" for each book you read and tape it to the wall leading into the children's room.  Let's see if we can read enough to fill the entire wall!!
3Doodle Pens:  Draw in 3 dimensions!  Our six new pens will be available for use to create your own 3D drawing that you can take home. Ages 8 and up please.  Please sign up for a date by emailing us or stopping in to ensure a pen is available on the day you wish to come.
