Gearing Up for Summer: Summer Reading is here!

Summer Reading MiceThe popular library program, encouraging kids to read or be read to, is back. Sign up online or at your local library, where you’ll receive a reading log. For every book your child reads (or that you read to them — meaning even your youngest can participate!), they’ll receive a sticker (just make sure to record the title of the book on their reading log). Once 10 books have been finished, your child wins a paperback book of their choice! Finished with 10 before August 3rd? Your child will be entered into a contest to win breakfast at the Sheraton Hotel with the other “Champions” of summer reading.

In addition to the great incentives to read, the Summer Reading Program means a lot of great workshops and performers at various SPL Branches throughout the season. Whether it’s learning to Make a Manga, coming face to face with live raptors from the Zoo, or practicing the Peg-Leg Tango with the bucaneer crew of Captain Bogg & Salty, there’s plenty to learn, see, and do at your local library this Summer. Be sure to pick up the June issue of Parent Map to see a full schedule of library events. Happy reading!
