The Reading Labs in the Summer Reading Program at Hulsey Public Library are a series of Learning Stations that are self-directed and self-paced, with library staff on hand to assist any children who have questions or need help to complete an activity.

At the Mad Scientist station, kids get a chance to take part in mini-experiments and learn various scientific principles first hand.

At the Brain Busters station, there are puzzles and games that emphasize reading comprehension and using the Dewey Decimal system to locate reading materials on specific topics.

The Computer station allows young readers to play games that require reading comprehension in order to complete the game.

The Craft station encourages kids to stretch their artistic muscles and create a fun item they can take home to remind them how awesome the Summer Reading Program was!

The Learning Station format is a fun, interactive way for us to reach a large number of children and encourage them to read and visit the library.

More than 550 children took part in the Reading Labs last year and we can’t wait to welcome all of the young readers who will join us this year!
