The 2011 Statewide Summer Reading Adventure kicks off at the Central Library on Wednesday, June 22nd at 6:30 p.m. Join us as Animal World Experience presents their newest program, "Global Safari"! This program, developed for the 2011 summer reading theme “One World, Many Stories,” takes children and adults alike on a journey across the globe. We will encounter several animals (maybe the adorable Russian Tortoise pictured here?) and discuss where they are native to and their importance to the culture. Animal World Experience's programs are always unique and extremely interactive and Global Safari is no exception! After the program, sign up for a “One Word, Many Stories” and a summer’s worth of fun! The 2011 Statewide Summer Reading Adventure is sponsored by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Massachusetts Library System, the Somerville Public Library, and the Boston Bruins. When You Read, You Score!
