“I am so excited to dive into this unique habitat with y’all.  The deep sea is one of my favorites and has such amazing animal life!” 

– Courtney Gerstenmaier Felton, Education Instructor

Summer Reading also includes Give Our Books New Looks Art Contest for third-fifth grade students to design a cover or draw a scene from a favorite book at Summer Reading Template 

and be entered to win a prize!  Deadline to submit all artwork is August 31.  One entry per person.  

We hope that the Summer Reading Program encourages children to become lifelong readers.  We also hope to encourage the reluctant readers with the different activities they can do to complete the Summer Reading Program.  Most of all we would like it to become a family activity.”
