School is almost done and that means one thing around here. Summer Reading Club! We’ve got lots of activities lined up for your summer and (of course) prizes for reading. The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Club is Fizz Boom Read – Science and Discovery and we want to help you explore and discover new things all summer long. Summer Reading Club runs from Monday, June 2 until Saturday, August 30. You’ve got thirteen weeks to join, read and/or attend library programs and earn prizes.
When you sign up you will be eligible for:
- A bookmark – to keep track of where you are in the book you are reading
- A reading log – to keep track of the books you’ve read or library programs you’ve attended
- One of the following cool treats (varies by library):
Members of the Kids club can collect stickers for their reading logs every week!
Your reading goal…and prizes!
Starting July 5, Kids who have read 10 books and Teens who have read 5 books can pick a prize from the science prize box at their local library. What’s in the box? Read 10 books if you’re a Kid and 5 if you’re a Teen to find out. Adults who read 5 books get a magnifying bookmark and a coupon for a free book at a Friends of the Library book sale. Everyone who draws from the science prize box or gets a magnifying bookmark is also automatically entered into two prize drawings. The first prize drawing is held at each library and the winners will receive:
- Kids & Teens – Jumpology gift card
- Adults – Restaurant gift card
The second prize drawing is county wide. There will be a drawing for Kids, Teens and Adults. The three winners will receive an iPad Mini! The prize drawings will be held on Wednesday, September 3.
