Family Story Times in the Library

Join children's librarian Nita Couchman

Thursdays & Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. in the Library's Children's Room

for stories and fun! Family storytimes are geared toward preschool-aged children, but all are welcome.

How the Summer Reading Program 2016 Works

Kids from preschool age through 6th grade may register for the reading program. Adults may read to preschoolers who can’t read on their own yet. The reading program runs from June 19 – August 13.

Children may register at the Library beginning on June 16th.

Earn one library dollar for each day you read
AT LEAST 20 minutes!

READING RECORDS: At registration, each child will get a reading record for keeping track of their reading (or the books that are read to them). Families keep the reading records (we don’t store them at the library).

Kids color in the object on each day they read at least 20 minutes, then bring reading records to the Library to collect “LIBRARY DOLLARS” and have their name entered in the weekly drawing.

Library dollars may be used to “BUY” new paperback books at the library from the Summer Reading Program Book Store.

Children may purchase a maximum of 5 books, but are encouraged to continue reading and entering their name in the weekly drawing.

WEEKLY DRAWING: Each week there will be a drawing for a BAG OF SURPRISE GOODIES. To enter the weekly drawing, bring reading records to the Library each week and have a staff member at the front desk check the record and enter your name. Drawings are made on Saturday evening.

THE LAST DAY TO ADD TO YOUR READING RECORD IS SATURDAY, AUGUST 13. Books may be purchased with Library Dollars until school starts – but we encourage you to buy your books throughout the summer for the best selection.
