Summer Reading Programs Dominate Library Activities in June and July

The Children’s Summer Reading Program's theme is "Every Hero Has a Story." This program involves lots of reading, fun prizes, and a summer’s worth of interesting programs to warm the heart of any youngster.Children, ages 0 to 12, who sign up for the summer program pledge to read at least 100 minutes each week. Pre-readers will have someone read to them. This will qualify them for the prizes, including a free book to take home.

The programs are scheduled at 3:30 p.m. on Mondays from June 1 through July 20 in Reese Hall. While no registration is required to attend, please note that space is limited, and the doors will close 15 minutes after the start of each program. 

The Civic Center Library adult and teen patrons will read, receive fun prizes, and attend interesting activities in a program entitled “Escape the Ordinary.” Teens will join the Summer Reading Program on their kickoff day, Thursday, June 4, beginning a summer’s worth of games, pizza, fun, and reading. At 1:30 p.m. on frequent Thursdays in Reese Hall, teens will participate in various activities. Adults will “Escape the Ordinary” this summer, reading and collecting prizes and attending a series of programs. The Adult Summer Reading Program begins on Monday, June 1, at which time participants may register at Summer Reading Program Central (the first floor Homework Center, where last summer’s program was coordinated, but rumor has it that this year’s decoration, in itself, will be worth the trip).
