2016 Summer Library Program
Registration begins June 1st
Rules of the Game
Readers are Champions! Everyone loves to play. This summer you can play inside or outside, play with magic, play with drums, play with hip-hop or puppets. Whether you are a sports fan or not, you will have a blast at the library this summer!
Read to the Finish Line! Please read the schedule carefully and take note of starting times and age restrictions. Space is often limited so please be prompt. You may attend as many events as you please, we only ask that your child be registered for the Summer Reading Club and that you keep a reading log.
Hit a Home Run…READ! Rules are simple and few. Kids simply keep track, on their logs, of how much time they spend reading. Pre-readers may keep track of time they are read to. After reading for 10 hours, kids will receive a certificate and free book of their choice. Books and certificates will be available after June 20. Bring your log to the library once a week for a prize from our sports bag.
