An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until July 26, 2019

This summer children ages 6-12 can explore the Summer by the Sea: Sloop Logs and Ledgers exhibition in Southport at Pequot Library. This week-long, half-day program celebrates the beauty of Southport with its rich history as a bustling seaport and its classic 18th- and 19th-century architecture. Enjoy art activities on the Great Lawn, along with games and stories. Create a Southport sea-themed lemonade stand to be constructed for the Library’s annual Summer Book Sale.

This summer’s program is coordinated with Pequot’s Summer by the Sea: Sloop Logs and Ledgers exhibition in the Perkin Gallery. Children will have the opportunity to examine Pequot’s collection of rare books on the subject.
