Our annual Summer Reading Program will be ending soon on Wednesday, July 31st, 2013. This will be the last day to turn in your reading lists or reviews. You will have until Saturday, August 3rd to pick up your last prize.
This year, we’ve had hundreds of children and teens participate, from birth to age 20. Many prizes have been earned through this program, and our children’s wall has been filled with names of participants. We are very proud of our community and their participation.
The Summer Reading Program is once again upon us, and watching children live out the adventures of their favorite fictional figures has caused me to reminisce about my favorite character when I was a kid,Dorrie the Little Witch. Dorrie, from the children’s series by Patricia Coombs, lives in a large house with the Big Witch (her mother) and Cook.
Think the Summer Reading Program is just about Reading? Think again. There are all sorts of ways for kids to enjoy themselves while participating this summer. And what better way to start things off than with a party?
What’s that? Party at the Library? Yes, you read that right. There are times when it’s okay to make noise at the library. Our summer reading kickoff parties feature treats, games, and more! Follow the links below to learn more:
Summer Loss occurs when children do not have access to books or reading over the school summer break. Kids who don't read over the summer can actually lose 2 or more months of acquired reading skills. I encourage parents to look at summer as an opportunity to keep kids moving forward in their reading ability.
We're halfway through our Teen Summer Reading Program, and things are going great! The prizes this year are pretty awesome. I'm jealous of all the fantastic books you guys can win. Did you know you are eligible to win up to 12 books over the summer? By earning up to 25 Teen Bucks, that adds up fast. Don't forget that every review you write gets you another chance to win that Kindle Fire HDX. We're so excited to be giving away 31 this year. That's more than we've ever given away before, so your chances are better than ever!
