Today is the last day to sign up for our Summer Reading Program!

Toddlers and children up to 12 years of age are eligible to participate in the 2013 Dig into Reading Summer Reading Program. Children may read on their own or parents (grandparents, etc.) may read to their children. They can read their own books or library books.

Please register and turn in logs at only one library branch. When you register in the children's room of your library, you will receive a free book bag. In your book bag is the first reading log.

Children must read six books or 6 chapters of a book and record the titles on their weekly log. Once a week, bring the log to the children's desk in your library and receive a prize.

Starting with the 3rd log the child may complete an entry card for the free bike drawing. This means that if your child completes all 7 weekly reading logs, the child will have 5 chances to win the free bike drawing. Each library branch will give away one girl's bike and one boy's bike, along with helmets for a different size if necessary. Drawings will be held at the end-of-summer party at each branch. Entrants need not be present to win.

All children who participate in the summer reading program are invited to a party at the end of the 8 week program at their library branch. Each child will receive a certificate showing their reading accomplishment.
Registration begins Saturday, May 25th and ends Wednesday, July 10th. No reading logs will be accepted the day of the parties.

Thank you again for choosing to participate in the summer reading program. If you have any questions, contact the children's department at your library. Happy reading!
