Glenwood City Public Library is thrilled to announce its partnership with Page Turner Adventures, the Emmy-Award Winning team of Jill Nadler and Kenny Mikey, known for bringing stories to life with their comedic approach at libraries, schools and theaters across the world, announced today plans to take the show on the…internet.
Starting June 7, the Glenwood City Public Library will give patrons access to a Virtual Summer Reading Program geared towards children in grades K-3, that includes comedy shows, crafts, recipes, children’s book author interviews, guest performers, contests, games, and much more.
“For over eighteen years Kenny and I have been performing for young children around the world. We can’t wait to bring our passion for storytelling to the online space this summer,” said Jill Nadler, founder of Page Turner Adventures. “With ongoing uncertainty about in-person events this summer, we are excited to continue our support of virtual summer programming which allows local libraries to engage with their young audiences in a meaningful way. We are certain that this comprehensive, entertaining summer program will be ideal for their young viewers.”
The Animal Adventures Summer Reading Program is based on the intrepid Storyologist, Page Turner (Nadler) and Kenny, her slap-stick sidekick. Together, they transform children into Storyologists and send them on comic quests to collect, tell, and write stories. Each week this summer, viewers will journey through the “Once Upon a Time Machine” for virtual adventures based on themes such as farmyard friends, fish tales, pet pals, celebrity critters, safari stories, creepy crawlies, fantastic beasts, and swamp stories. There are five days of programming for each weekly theme which includes professionally produced shows, author interviews, virtual field trips, and arts and crafts projects.
“Unfortunately, in-person events at the library are limited this summer, but fun activities are still on our agenda,” said Rochel Karlson – Library Director. “The Virtual Summer Reading Program is a great way to continue to connect with our patrons and encourage children to keep using their imagination all summer long!”
Access to programming can be acquired through the Glenwood City Public Library system. To join in on the fun, please call 715-265-7443 or visit glenwoodcitylibrary.org. For more information on Page Turner Adventures, please visit https://pageturneradventures.com.
