Shoot for the Stars This Summer!
You can make math a fun part of everyday life.
 
This program began Monday, June 23 and will continue throughout the summer

The program is simple. Bedtime Math posts zany daily math riddles on their website, free app, and Facebook page. Every time kids do a math problem, they can track their progress using a fun connect-the-dots constellation chart and shiny star stickers available at the library. Kids can bring in their sparkling constellation chart and earn a Bedtime Math flashlight.
