The Children’s Summer Reading program began May 27 and goes through September 3. Encourage your kids to read oat least 12 hours between this time and not only will they get fabulous prizes but they will also gain the benefit that reading provides. That’s the real prize, isn’t it?
This year, young readers (pre-readers may participate by having an adult read to them) will receive various reading rewards from the Friends of the Library, certificates for a free bowl of noodles from Noodles & Company, a free mini-pizza from Papa Murphy’s, a free prize from ABC & Toy Zone, and a bookmark from IBM.
Better hurry, these prizes are first-come, first-served and only while supplies last. Last year there were so many readers that we actually did run out and had to find other prizes to give out. It was a great problem to have, really.
