Kids Summer Reading 2018

The Summer Reading Club is a free self-paced program in which children choose their reading level and keep a log of the amount of time they spend reading (or are read to) each day.   The Summer Reading Club is open to kids ages 0-12.

You may pick up reading logs for the Summer Reading Club at the Children’s Desk.  The last day to turn in a reading log is Friday July 20.   For every  3 squares finished on the reading log (or hour read) you get an entry into the prize drawing.  The more you read, the more chances you’ll have to win!  Reading materials include books, comics/graphic novels, magazines, audio books and ebooks.

Team Challenge

This summer we are breaking into teams and competing to see which team reads the most.  Readers will be broken into one of four teams: red, purple, green, or blue. The reading challenge takes place between June 2 – July 20. During the finale we will reveal the color of the winning team with decorations. All kids are invited to tape Ms. Bethni to the wall with the color of the winning team.

Children’s Events

See Kid’s Events on the Summer Program brochure below for the complete summer calendar. All events are free. We will be issuing tickets for kid’s events only. Ticket distribution begins one hour before the start of the program. For everyone’s safety, only ticket holders will be allowed to attend the program. Tickets are first come, first served.  Tickets are free. Everybody needs a ticket, even grown-ups and infants.

 Tickets are broken into A, B, C groups and will be called Southwest Airlines style-  A tickets first, B tickets, then C tickets.  This allows you and your children to stay downstairs to play and check out books instead of waiting in line.  Just listen for your letter to be called on the PA system head upstairs to the program.
