2018 Summer Reading and Activities for Pre-K thru 5th Grades
Our Theme This year, the national summer reading theme is "Libraries Rock!" We'll be promoting crating, hearing, and understanding music as vital companions to literacy. You will see this reflected in many of our programs, and in our decorations. Don't know anything about music? Don't worry. We'll have everyone singing along in no time! Registration for Summer Reading Registration for the the Summer Reading Incentive Program begins on Friday, June 22nd with a kick off party at 11:00am. The program is designed to encourage kids to read! read! read! Log sheets are provided and kids earn prizes for every four activities completed and/or for every two hours of reading. Completed sheets earn a raffle ticket toward a grand prize and an invitation to the End of Summer Reading Closing Celebration on Friday, August 17th. If you can't make the kick off celebration, no worry, children can be registered anytime from the kick off through the last day on August 17th.
