Polka Dot will perform July 7.

The Verona Public Library will have lots of activities for the town’s youngest readers this summer.

First up is the Reading Club. Kids can track their summer reading in a log book and win prizes for their efforts. There will be stickers for every 8 to 10 books read and a grand prize drawing on Wednesday, August 25 at 10 a.m. To get started, pick up a free log book at the main desk. The Reading Club is open to both readers and kids just learning about reading.

Then, every Wednesday through August 18, there will be a special performance at the library. Polka Dot will be singing  on Wednesday, July 7 at 10:30 a.m., following by magician Scott Drukker–Great Scott It’s Magic–on July 14 at 3 p.m. On Wednesday, July 21 at 3 p.m. there will be Bubble Trouble and, for reptile lovers, a live turtle show with author Steve Woyce on July 28 at 3 p.m.
