Kids Summer Experience

 A Universe of Stories Summer Experience at the Goffstown Public Library
A Universe of Stories
2019 Summer Experience at the Library

June 24 through August 16
For children ages 1 1/2 yrs. old through entering 5th graders.

When kids sign up at the Library, they’ll receive a folder with activities, bookmark, Summer Experience Challenge Board and instructions, along with a calendar of all programs. Kids can track their activities for a chance to earn raffle prize tickets and books.

Sign-ups begin June 14.

Children ages 1 1/2 through kindergarten can register for our Early Literacy Summer Experience Program to earn prizes and gently-used books instead of raffle tickets.

  • A weekly raffle will be held at the end of the day on each Friday of the program. The winner will be contacted by the following Monday morning.
  • Friday, August 16 is the final date to receive and submit raffle tickets; final drawing on August 21.
