Pre-Register for Library Camp
There are still some openings for children to attend camp at the library this summer. Each camp begins at the Grange and ends at the library. Breakfast and a generous snack will be provided. Transportation will be provided by Library Trustees for any child who needs it in order to attend.
All camps are free for Guilford residents. $50 for non-residents. Register online or you can get a registration form at the Guilford Free Library if you prefer.

We will spend each day focused on arts and the outdoors. Some of the activities will include movement exploration, reading/writing/listening to stories and poems, making simple costumes, playing outdoor games, singing and more.
