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.
This workshop is led by the Wonderland BookSavers, a 501(c)(3) group that has donated over 200,000 books to 500,000 kids across four continents. This organization is primarily run by kids under the age of 18 and was originally started at Pequot Library.
