You know summer is almost upon us when the Brooklyn Public Library announces the lineup for its annual Summer Reading Kickoff at Grand Army Plaza's Central Library, which this year has the theme of "Hidden Treasures" and takes place on Thursday, June 6. On this year's special-guest roster is the cast of Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, who'll perform for the audience, conduct a reading and take memento photos with kids in attendance. All day long, families can expect the likes of face painting, balloon sculptures, readings and musical performances, among other super kid-friendly activities. As in years past, the fete takes place on Brooklyn-Queens Day, which—thank goodness—public school kids in all five boroughs have off.


The "Hidden Treasures" Summer Reading Kickoff takes place at Central Library on Thursday, June 6, from 10:30am to 3:30pm. If it rains, the party will move indoors to the library's Dweck Center.
