Have you heard about our Summer Reading Program? It’s open to all kids and teens, ages eighteen and under. Participants who read five books will win a prize, but you can keep on reading as much as you want all summer. So participants that mange ten books can win two prizes, fifteen books win three prizes, etc.
So far, our sixty participants have read 280 books since the kick off date, June 18th. If you haven’t joined, it’s not too late! The program continues until school begins at the end of August. Just ask the librarian the next time you’re in.
