Summer Reading Programs begin June 3

"Dig Into Reading" is for kids up to 6th grade. For every hour your child reads, he or she will earn an incentive prize and an entry into the grand prize drawing held at the end of the summer. If your child doesn't want the incentive prize, he or she can choose to have the library donate 25 cents to the local Humane Society. Watch for library events all summer long. We'll have the zoo mobile, a dinosaur program, a movie series, a story time and craft series, and more!

"Under the Surface" is for teens, grades 6-12. For every book read, a teen earns another entry into a prize drawing. Prizes include gift certificates, water bottles, bags, and more. There will also be smaller incentive prizes throughout the summer. Watch for library events as well. We'll be making shrinky dinks, competing in Wii gaming, watching "Beautiful Creatures" and more.

"Groundbreaking Reads" is for adults. Use your summer reading to break some new ground--try some new authors or challenge yourself with different types of books. Book comment slips will double as entries for the drawing on Friday, August 2. The grand prizes are gift certificates donated by Anderson's Greenhouse and Black Woods Restaurant, plus other prizes provided by the Friends of the Library. There will also be prizes for those who turn in their first and fifth book comments.
