Youth Summer Reading at the Library!
The Youth Summer Reading Program begins right when school ends: kids can count reading time after school lets out on May 30th and read through July 26, 2014. The reading log will be available on our website or for pick-up in the Library beginning June 2. Keep track of your reading on a blank sheet of paper until you are able to get your hands on a reading log!
Anyone can participate in the Youth Summer Reading Program, babies, toddlers and kids entering kindergarten through 5th grade. Teens and adults have a reading program; they just have to travel upstairs.
Children can choose to read 50 books, 50 hours, or 50 days: choose the method that is best for your reader and start reading May 30! Kids will get a prize every five books, hours, or days of reading. The Prize Market will open on Monday, June 9th.
When you reach 50 Books, hours, or days of reading you will automatically be registered for the Grand Prize Raffle: A Kindle Fire HD tablet.
If you read more than 50 you may join the X-treme Reading Challenge and start a new reading log, which goes to 200. Every 25 you read after 50 you are automatically entered into the Grand Prize Raffle drawing again and you receive any prize from the Prize Market.
Kids may read to themselves, caregivers can read to children, and children can listen to audiobooks to earn reading time.
We are hosting a huge Summer Reading Kick-off Party at the Library Monday, June 2nd: There will be a Scholastic Book Sale, Clifford at the Library, Silly Safari Animal Show, I-spy special and squirt gun painting (weather permitting).
If you have read 3 books, hours or days by Monday, June 2, you may register and receive your 3 hour prize at the Summer Kick-off Party. From 10 AM -5 PM you can send your reading buddy down the Wild River Ride! The first 1000 children who report at least 3 of reading will receive a Rubber Duck.
