In the Colchester school district, administrators encourage students to participate in summer reading at the public library. They also have partnered with staff to ensure students have access to books. Colchester Elementary School and Jack Jackter Intermediate School in Colchester will keep their school libraries open on Tuesdays for their students in the summer. The CES Tuesday hours are from 9am-2pm and JJIS Tuesday hours are from 9am-12 noon and JJIS reopens from 4pm-7pm.
Colchester Elementary School also presented their summer 2016 “Reading with Pizza” Series at the Cragin Memorial Library. Students and families connected with friends this summer at Cragin while CES teachers read their favorite stories.
