We’re extending the summer reading rewards program through the end of August. We’ve had a record turn out this year (nearly 160 kids!) and have been busier than ever trying to keep up with reading records, events, and circulation tasks. Although the program was at first intended to last 6 weeks, some participants are taking longer than one week to finish the 180 minutes required to get that week’s prize. That’s ok! We’re glad that you are reading this summer! Instead of ending on Friday at the picnic, we’re going to allow anyone who hasn’t gotten all six prizes to keep reading until the last week of August. Then, on August 24th, we’ll converge on the Annex building for one last mystery program (an all-ages movie event that will be open to the public). Also available during the month of August will be free books for all of the summer program participants. Bring in the coupon you will receive at the picnic (or with your last prize if you miss the picnic) and pick out your own book from our great selection of juvenile novels.
