Summer Reading Program at the Library: PAWS TO READ

Preregistration: Tuesday, May 27th – Monday, June 2nd
Kickoff date: Tuesday, June 3rd
Programs runs from June 3rd to July 19th

This year’s program promises to be even more exciting—with great entertainment, more and better prizes, and an improved way to involve those from one month to eighteen years.  Our animal-centric performers will include the Forest Park Nature Center, the Warren County Sherriff’s K-9 unit, and a repeat visit from Bubba, the 10-foot alligator from Cold Blooded Creatures!  We’ll also be hosting magician Rick Brammer, scarf juggling with Ronald McDonald and rocket making with Bob Windt, a retired aeronautical engineer, as well as weekly crafts and movies.

We’ve restructured our program to make things more fun.  There are smaller reading goals for kids aged one month to five years old (1/2 hour instead of an hour).  The teen program will now mimic the adult reading program, with weekly teen-only prizes and less reporting necessary to win.  The prize structure is different, so we can guarantee bigger prizes to those who continue reading during the summer.  We’re committed to creating a wonderful and free way to encourage literacy in our community!
