And what a spectacular time we had! Passports in hand, we traveled all over the globe – from Italy to Jamaica, from Mexico to the Moon! We sampled food from Ecuador and Scotland, Trinidad and Bulgaria. We practiced with chopsticks. We listened to songs from Puerto Rico and made music with rainsticks. We admired costumes, dolls, teapots and photos. We danced to music from Peru & Italy. And we even got pins from the U.S. of A!

Thank you to all our community members who shared their foods, games, music and costumes with all of us. The country displays were amazing – and truly labors of love! What a wonderful way to share and learn about all different cultures! Gracias! Grazie! Merci! Xièxiè! Thank you!

This year, we celebrated the joys of reading with a stellar Summer Reading Game Pizza Party at the Peekskill Elks Lodge. We feasted on pizza, popcorn, fruit, lemonade and treats. We listened to the heavenly sounds of DJ “Pete” Peterson! And we danced the evening away with our Summer Reading buddies!

We ended the evening with goody bags full of fans, galaxy notebooks, planet pencils and light up bracelets! And one of our party-goers had so much fun that he announced, “This was the best day of my life!” Wow!

There are so many people to thank, starting with the fabulous and supportive Peekskill Elks Lodge! They are true friends of The Field Library! They welcomed us to their wonderful lodge (the perfect party place) and helped us at every stage of the celebration.

Thanks to the awesome DJ “Pete” Peterson for all the great tunes! Gratitude to Domino’s for donating half of the pizzas (yum!).

A huge shout out to our summer volunteers who were engaging and dedicated. They worked so hard helping us to run the Summer Reading Game. A big pat on the back to the children’s room staff for all their hard work all summer long!

And a big thank you to Mayor Rainey for gracing us with his presence and his inspiring words.

Finally, kudos to all the kids who played our Summer Reading Game and earned their invitations by reading lots and lots of books! And thanks to all those parents who encouraged their kids to read all summer long.

We couldn’t have done it without all of your help and support! You’re all out of this world!

Fun with laundry?!

A huge shout-out to Uriah Hill Director Carmen Vargas and Kindergarten teacher Ana Budds for a fabulous Peekskill Basics Workshop! Parents learned about how to use toy food,  shapes, trucks – and even laundry – to teach kids about sorting and grouping! Who knew that cleaning up toys or putting away laundry could be so much fun – and such a good way to learn!

After all the fun and games, children got to pick out a FREE book! Thanks to all the children and grownups who participated.
