Page Turner Adventures: A Virtual Summer Reading Program

Page Turners Giraffe

Get ready for a Story Safari with Page Turner Animal Adventures.

Bossard Library is excited to announce that we are partnering with Page Turner Adventures to offer our patrons a FREE summer experience. 

Each week will feature a different theme and each day offers a new experience -- theater shows, stories, crafts, children's book author and illustrator interviews, contests, games, special guest performers, virtual field trips, and much more.

Monday is Show Day featuring a virtual story theater show; Tuesday is Craft Day featuring crafts, games, recipes, science experiments, and other activities; Wednesday is Author and Illustrator Day featuring fun interviews, read-alongs, trivia games, book giveaways and other activities with children's authors and illustrators; Thursday is Mashup Day featuring more crafts and activities; and Friday is Guest Day featuring special guests related to that week's theme.
