Summer reading programs with the Shelton libraries
This summer the Shelton libraries are holding reading clubs for all ages.

Rubber Ducky Club at Plumb is for children infant to 36 months and their caregivers. Geared to early literacy in through August — it’s never too early to begin reading with your baby or young child. Fill-out a duck marker for your child and get your Rubber Ducky Club Log. After completing six educational activities with your child — bring the activity log into Plumb to collect your Rubber Duck prize. Complete six more educational activities, color in six ducks in July — bring log into Plumb for a board book and then by Thursday, Aug. 29, complete the last six educational activities and color in the last six ducks, bring log into Plumb for a Rubber Ducky Club Certificate. Complete all 18 and receive a ticket for a special prize drawing.
Teens 13-18 explore the paranormal through movies, books and programs. Read three books and report, receive an invitation to the Masquerade Ball in August.
Reporting options include: telling a staff member, connecting on Facebook (facebook.com/teensatplumb); giving a Tweet (@teensatplumb) or Instagram (#teensatplumb) with a picture of you holding the book and hashtag a comment on the book.
Reports still win a candy bar or Plumb Buck for each day that you submit a report (in person or online), plus every time you use your library card to check out anything you are entered into a weekly drawing for prizes from local businesses.
