Dig Into Reading
April 09, 2013
It’s getting warmer out at long last, and we all know what that means-it’s almost time for the Summer Reading program! Teens: this year’s theme is Dig into Reading. What do you think of when you hear these words? Construction? Gardening? Burrowing into a cozy spot to read a new book?
This year’s program will run much as it did last year. You’ll earn teen bucks for every book review you submit to us. Reviews must be at least 25 words in length, and a maximum of 25 bucks can be earned over the course of the program. Bucks can be used to pay fines, buy replacement cards, print documents, make copies, or purchase award books and prizes. We’ll also be hosting a "lock-in" at the North Independence Branch from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. on Friday, May 31st. More information to come!
We’ve told you what’s up, and now we want to hear from you! What do you want to do to celebrate this year’s theme? Maybe go on a multi-branch geocaching adventure? Create a time capsule? Learn about archaeology? The possibilities are truly endless. We need to know where your interests lie so that we can create a stellar line-up of programs just for you.
You can submit feedback directly to the North Independence Branch by phone or in person. We hope to hear from you!
