What is Summer Reading Club?
Children sign up at the library and receive a booklet to keep track of their reading during the summer. After reading 40 books (or for 10 hours), your child(ren) will earn a prize, free food coupons, and a free book! This year children have 8 weeks to complete their reading records and turn them in. They may complete 2 reading records this summer for a chance to earn 2 prizes, 4 food coupons, and 2 free books.
