Special programs featuring science, music, art, and more as well as stories and crafts are included in the Young Explorer programs.
All programs are free and open to the public due to the hard work of Library volunteers, donations and support from the community. According to Chincoteague Island Library Board President, Linda Ryan, “The Library becomes a busy place in the summer. The children’s programs, the summer reading challenge, and an increased number of patrons all add to a bustling time at Library. In addition to the programs for children the adult book clubs and the Annual Summer Sunset Cruise on June 20 add to the summer fun at the Library. We invite residents and visitors alike to visit the Chincoteague Island Library. We are open 6 days a week and offer activities as well as a quiet spot for reading and relaxing. As always, programs are open to all residents and visitors alike”
