The Summer Reading Camp at Jamaica Memorial Library was a great success.
We had fiber projects, silk screening, mural painting, and live animals visit right in our town library.
Campers learned the difference between amphibians and reptiles through slides and real animals. They also sang songs and dug in the dirt to search for signs of life. All of this was made possible by the wonderful team of volunteers and incredible artists and teachers who took the time to be with these fortunate children.
I'd like to thank Hot Glass Works in Jamaica for donating glass ornaments for the children to keep.
Also, a huge thanks to our guests: fiber artists David Lima and Richard Muto, silk screen artists Alison and Garrison Buxton, Michael Clough from Southern Vermont Natural History Museum, Jen Connor for her face painting artistry and Laura Clark for sharing her musical talent with us.
Last, but not least, thank you to all of our volunteers! I'm already looking forward to next year. Until then, keep reading!
