GREENWICH, Conn. -- Grab your passport and book a trip with Greenwich Library's summer reading club, themed One World, Many Stories.
The club is designed for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. The idea is for the children to experience the joy of reading through activities, games, incentives and a summer full of special programs.

The next event is Animal Embassys World Wildlife show with the Stamford Museum and Nature Centers Chris Evers, who will talk about animal ambassadors and the preservation and conservation issues they face. He will also introduce the children to live animals from all parts of the world.
Drop by to make crafts from foreign countries, like worry dolls and paper tribal necklaces on July 19 or maracas and paper fortune cookies on Aug. 2.
Watch your kids dance and sing along at the One Heart/One World multicultural celebration that begins with a Native American ceremony and ends with an African drum and dance celebration--July 23 at 11 a.m. in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room.
