Looking for something for your children to do this summer? Sign them up for the Summer of Reading program.
Any child from birth all the way up to teens getting ready for their senior year of high school can participate in the Summer of Reading program and win books and other fun prizes. Just visit your local branch, sign up, and start reading (or singing, talking, playing, reading, and writing with the birth through pre-K crowd). Registration begins on Monday, June 3rd and will end on Saturday, July 27th. Participation is free.
Reading is a fun way to learn new things, relax, escape to an imaginary world, or bond with your child. Plus, research shows that children who read over the summer have an easier time remembering what they learned in school. Give your child a little extra incentive by signing them up for the Summer of Reading Program.
Each branch will be offering fun events and crafts, from face painting to baby yoga to a Steampunk Keychain or Necklace-making workshop.
