Reading not only fun but a family affair at The Village Library of Cooperstown

Reading Not Only Fun
But A Family Affair At The
Village Library Ff Cooperstown

Abba Mejía Spiegeler, and daughters Martina and Julia

The Village of Cooperstown’s Library has something for everyone this summer. The Summer Reading Program has been an annual tradition since the 1890s. It was traditionally for children and teens, but there was never much that was offered for adults.

“As an adult reader I wanted to join in the fun so we’ve included adults too,” said Heather Urtz Amendolare, library director. “We wanted to be able to offer reading projects to all ages, not just children.”

This year the theme is “Oceans of Possibilities”. “We will be holding a range of programs for community members including twice weekly storytimes, Utica Zoo visits, book discussions, crafts, lectures, and STEAM related programming,” Ms. Amendolare said.
