Yep, it’s that time again! The free, annual Summer Reading Program runs June 15th through August 10th with several underground themes to stimulate digging into some good books.
Online registration opened June 1st, and on June 15th reading may commence. Starting on the 15th, the library will have a table continually staffed with volunteers to help parents and readers sign up and participate in the program.
Plenty of events have been planned for readers as well! There will be magicians, jugglers, movies, crafts, and more! Watch for signs, fliers, and announcements in all the usual places for specific details about these events and others.
This is the 71st year that the library has had a special summer program to encourage reading for pleasure and fight boredom. But, it also helps school kids of all ages to retain reading skills while school is out, which in turn gives them an educational edge when school resumes.
