We are excited to announce our 2021 Summer Reading Program, Tails & Tales, all about animals! The program will run from June 1st to August 6th with the final prize drawing being held on August 15th! To register, simply go to SussexCountyDE.beanstack.org and start logging your reading time! The program consists of three age groups: children (0-11), teens (12-17) and adults (18+). A virtual badge and 5 raffle tickets will be awarded for every 5 hours of reading time. These raffle tickets can be applied to a range of awesome prizes from Sussex County Beanstack. On top of that, people who log reading time in each given week will automatically be entered into weekly raffle prizes from the Greenwood Public Library. Kids and teens who read for ten hours may come into the library to choose their free book. Be sure to check our library calendar for exciting programs too!
Tales of Chemistry (online)

Professor DoDad and his new lab assistant Asher share the Tales of Chemistry. Designed for, but not limited to children in 5-6th grade. Explore the tales of matter and the changes that occur. The Professor’s lab will fizzle, bang, pop, and ooze Tales of Chemistry. If you can’t make it on July 24th, this show will be available to view on our website www.greenwood.lib.de.us.
