Foxx, Pat Letterboxing for Kids Life Skills- Other,
Literature- Other,
Visual Arts- Other
Each child will create two stamps and two booklets. They will be given a plastic bag (their box) in which they'll place one stamp and one booklet. In a paper bag to carry with them, they'll keep their own stamp and booklet, a pencil and a stamp pad. Each child will hide his/her "box" somewhere in the library and will make up a clue as to where it is hidden. The clues will be kept at the craft table or central spot where the children will come to get them as they complete each search. When they find a box, they stamp the pad in the box with their stamp and write their name, and then stamp their booklet with the stamp that is in the box they found. As they follow each clue, they will fill their booklet with the stamp imprints of all the boxes, which are put back in the hiding place after being found. This can be done outside on the grounds of the library or within the library itself.

Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Butterfly Release Nature- Animals,
Nature- Gardening,
Visual Arts- Crafts
Everyone loves butterflies, especially up close and personal. They are a medium that unlocks the heart of angry teenagers, and are able to coax the shyest of children out of their shells. When there is a butterfly release in town, people literally drop everything to attend. The day of the event students learn how to identify host and nectar plants, what Monarch eggs, larvae, and pupal forms look like; how to tell a male from female and why the males have pheromone pouches on their wings. There is much discussion on native butterflies in NY and identifying specimens patrons have observed. Releases attract the attention of the local media, and are great publicity. I have Monarch, Painted Lady, Mourning Cloak, Eastern Black Swallowtail, and Red Admiral Butterflies this season. Wild-caught displays (not always available) might include Eastern Tailed Blue, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Clouded Sulphur, Cabbage White, White Admiral, and Baltimore Checkerspot. At the end of the program the butterflies are released either individually or as a group. This program is suitable for the 2017 Summer Reading Program.
