  • The Little Falls Public Library conducted a kick-off party for its “Dream Big Read!” summer reading program on Monday afternoon.
    Children were invited to wear their pajamas and enjoy popcorn while watching “Bedtime Stories.”
    Youth can still register to take part in the five-week summer reading program at the library. Participants will receive a reading contract and a log.
    Library manager Kari Szymanski said in the program children set their own reading goal.
    “Children can either choose to set a particular number of reading minutes or the amount of books read,” said Szymanski. “Readers are invited to bring their log to any of the summer reading program’s events and have their names put on the ‘Dream Big Read’ board.”
    As a reward, Szymanski said individuals who complete their contracts by Wednesday, Aug. 8, will have a chance to help decorate and ride in the library’s Canal Celebration parade float.
    The library, at 10 Waverly Place, will present a “Dream Big Read!” movie every Monday at 2 p.m. over the next five weeks. The next feature film to be screened will be “Hoot” on July 16.
    As part of summer reading program craft days will be provided at the library every Tuesday through Thursday beginning at 1 p.m. when there is not a special event scheduled. Seating for crafts is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis for children ages 5 to 11 only, said Szymanski.
    The library will host a special event every week in July as part of the program. The first was an appearance by the Priceteeni Flea Circus. Storyteller Robin Bady will be featured on July 19.
    All summer reading program events at the library will be free of charge.
