The Verona-based non-profit that helps children with learning differences and their families is bringing its outdoor summer reading program to the Verona Pool this year.

The program, which C.H.I.L.D. runs in concert with the Verona Recreation Department, starts on Monday, June 28, and runs every weekday through Friday, July 30 from noon to 5 p.m. And given the program’s location this year, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that its theme will be water: C.H.I.L.D. is promising stories and other activities about oceans, rivers, lakes, and pools and the creatures that live there. The 2010 Summer Reading Program is open to pre-schoolers through young adults, with programs, prize drawings from our local businesses, story hours, and more.

The program is free, but C.H.I.L.D. is asking people who might be interested in it to register so that it knows how many giveaways to have on hand. Registration will begins at the pool on Monday, June 28.
