The summer reading program theme at the Pember Library this summer is One World, Many Stories. Karen Gallagher is a music therapist working in hospital, group home and nursing home settings. She plays the flute with the Sage City Symphony and Washington County Band. She has been leading sing-alongs and encouraging others to make music for over 20 years.

Karen will lead our sing-along on August 24 at 6:00 PM at the Pember Library; 33 West Main St. in Granville. There will be songs for all ages, from “Danny Boy” and “Que Sera Sera” to “Frere Jacques,” “It’s a Small World After All” and “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.” Come join the fun!

The teen summer reading program is headed in a whole new  direction from our original plans. The teens are now planning to make videos of the local area. After all,  the theme is “You are Here.” Please join us if you would like to help to help with scripts, storyboards, filming or editing.

We have added another date to the program.

Students from sixth through twelfth grade can sign up at the library or online at http://pember.sals.edu for our teen summer reading book club.

You are Here

Summer reading is not only fun, it helps you to keep up when you return to school in the fall. New York State libraries are following the theme of “One World, Many Stories” this year and teens are encouraged to explore the world through reading with their theme “You are Here!” Use the Pember Library and its resources to choose a place you’d like to visit. Investigate global customs, cultures, artifacts, architecture, technology, language and more. Follow your interests through books, maps, food, poetry, Internet searches, and our own Granville resources.
Students from sixth through twelfth grade can sign up at the library or online at http://pember.sals.edu for our teen summer reading book club. Travel the world without leaving our own community. We will meet on July 27, and August 10 at 4:00 PM. Our concluding activity will take place on August 24 at 6:00 PM when Karen Gallagher will take us around the world with music.
