Read & Feed Summertime Library Program Keeps Local Kids Busy
Story telling, art projects, such as finger knitting, kept kids entertained and busy during the six sessions of the program.
Approximately 100 youngsters and their family members recently enjoyed a number of fun activities and healthy snacks while attending this summer’s “Read and Feed Program” under the direction of Ashley Guerzo, Youth Librarian and sponsored by the “Friends of the Englewood Charlotte Library” at the library located in Tringali Park in Englewood.
An “Interactive Fossil Experience was presented by Dr. Ashley Oliphant, Aka: The Shark Lady, where kids learned, hands on, about sharks, dinosaur fossils and various sea life. Dr. Oliphant is a retired English teacher from South Carolina, she is a regular visitor to Florida, as her presentations are enjoyed throughout the state.
This learning experience included the creation of “Jellyfish Tentacles Sensory Bottles”, a craft the kids were happy to complete and take home to remember the 2022 “Read and Feed Summer Program” at Englewood Library.
