MOUNT VERNON — Dr. Shaw Memorial Library has announced its Libraries Rock! Children’s Summer Reading activities.

• Wednesday, July 11, 4 p.m.: Garden Stepping Stones

Come make and decorate your own stepping stone. Make an extra one to create a path from our porch to our new addition. Bring your own special trinkets to place in it if you want — shells, pebbles, marbles, keys, you name it. This may be messy. Wear old clothes!

• Wednesday, July 18, 4 p.m.: Creeping Creatures Stone Art

Enjoy a hands-on experience with The Very Hungry Caterpillar with Leslie Grenier and then create your own insect or creature out of stones.

• Wednesday, July 25, 4 p.m.: Turtle banks and flowers

Make a bank for your coins or other small collections or design a flower out of foam.

• Wednesday, Aug. 1, 4 p.m.: Rock n’ Roll and Rocky Road

Come listen to and sing along with Mount Vernon musician Greg Hatt, and then enjoy ice cream on the lawn. Passes to the Farmington Fair will be awarded to all who bring their completed reading logs.

For more information, call the library at 293-2565.
