Sign your kid (or teen) up for a book club at the library! L.A., Long Beach, Beverly Hills, and the Slavin Jewish Library all have Summer Reading Programs. Kids keep track of how many books they’ve read–and even may review them with the librarians themselves! There are prizes and art projects for the little ones and other incentives for the teens.
Many L.A. libraries have great kids activities outside the covers of books, too. The closest library to me, Robertson, has a number of fun summer puppet shows, magic shows, music, and the like planned. All kid activities occur on Wednesdays at 4 p.m., while the teen activities are scheduled separately.
More fun afternoon activities, this time on Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m. at the Beverly Hills Library. Click here for flyer.
