Our Summer Reading program, themed “Read: Build a Better World!” runs from Monday, June 5 throughout July!
Our program has two components: the reading component, which is open to all ages (because we believe in lifelong learning!) and also weekly activities for preschool and elementary children. Patrons who read four books will earn an awesome, purple-and-white drawstring backpack (great for carrying those summer reading books!), with additional incentives earned when more books are read. There’s a prize box, along with a cart of giveaway books for all ages!
We’ve added a number of different fiction and mystery series recently, as well as loads of new books for Preschool, Juvenile and Young Adult. There’s reading material to appeal to all ages — it’ll make earning that backpack easy (but supplies are limited, so don’t wait)! If you haven’t already done so, stop in and sign yourself (and your children or grandchildren) up for the reading portion of our summer program, and get ready to Build a Better World through reading! (Note: To ensure sufficient materials for crafts, we require advance sign-up for the weekly activities. When signing up preschool and elementary for the reading portion, you’ll be asked on the form whether the children will attend the weekly summer activities. So if you’ve filled out a form already, you’re all set! )
