Build A Better World at the Woodridge Public Library

As the school year winds down parents often ask, "What do I do with my kids all summer?" The answer for the students at Goodrich could very well be the children's programs at the Woodridge Public Library. We were lucky enough to have two librarians come to visit us to let all the students know about everything that they will be offering this summer. Both Patti Naisbitt and Katie Lehman work at the library with students to provide them with both reading and other summer programs. Build a Better World is the theme this year and many of the activities center around building, whether it is building with Legos, a Mousetrap Machine Show with Dr. Smartypants for all ages or the Coding club for students in grades 4-7.

The reading club sign up begins on June 3rd. New this year is the online registration. You can find all of the program information on this site. Also on June 3rd is the summer reading kick-off. There will be a Lego Engineering display and build workshops. Make sure you register before attending as space is limited for the Lego build workshop on this date! 

The students might enjoy many of their other offerings that include a soccer clinic by the Chicago Fire, the Sky Tonight Planetarium by the Discovery Center and Lego club for grades 1-7. If you live in Woodridge you may have received the Library Leaves flyer in the mail. This flyer outlines all of the activities that are available! The best news is that ALL students who go to Goodrich school can participate! You do not have to live in Woodridge to take advantage of the programs.

If you want to express yourselves creatively you can join one of theater classes that are offered. Be entertained by the Improv Playhouse Theater for Young People as they bring the classic tale, The Emperor's New Clothes to life on July 7th.  And if acting isn't your "thing" then maybe you will want to join the library on Fridays to watch a movie. Bring a lunch to munch on while you watch! 

There are many more programs available from baby to adult. So,the next time your kids ask you for something to do this summer, your answer should be "Let's visit the Woodridge Public Library!"
