Dig into Reading at the Madison Public Library


MADISON, NJ - ‘Dig into Reading’ is the theme for the summer program at Madison Public Library. 

Babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, lower school children, teens, adults and family won’t be left without anything to do.  Activities are plentiful from special workshops, clubs, exhibits and seminars to hands-on activities and crafts.

“Kids love the summer reading program because they are able to track their reading.  Based on how much they read, they can win prizes.  We encourage kids to read what they want to read.  We even have some kids who are here taking advantage of the summer program 2-3 hours a day each week,” said Emily Weisenstein, Children’s Services Supervisor.

Nancy Adamcyk, Library Director indicated that the summer reading program really helps children maintain a sense of continuity so that when the school year begins in September, they’re more prepared because they’ve developed the good habit of reading over the summer.

“There are other programs offered as well,” said Carrie Thompson, Program Coordinator. “On Tuesday, some of the teens made candy sushi, and they had a great time eating what they made.  Look, I took a photo and the candy really does look like sushi,” she said.

An example of an upcoming teen program is the “Henna Workshop on Friday, July 12 between 2-4.  Teens can learn about the art and history of the ‘henna’ plant.  Tattoo designs and applications will follow.

“It’s never too late to participate in the summer reading program or the library’s activities,” said Nancy Adamcyk.
