A Universe of Stories: Teen Summer Reading Challenge

The Lewes Public Library will be participating in “A Universe of Stories”.  This year’s summer learning challenge theme was chosen to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.  Below is a list of space-themed programs that are open to students 12 and older.  All of our programs are free.  Registration is required for many of the events because space and supplies are limited.  You may register by clicking on the hyperlink or visiting the Teen Wing at the library.

Print your Bingo Board and complete squares to be eligible for prizes throughout the summer!

All programs will take place from 1 PM until 3 PM unless otherwise noted.
