Read for the Win

Participants in the Children's Program are invited to join us on August 8 at City Park from 1:00-4:00 for our final event.  We'll have games, a snow machine, and a barrel train.  Bring a sandwich and we'll provide a snack and a drink.

Summer is the perfect time to read for the fun of it and the 2016 Louise and Marvin Fenster Summer Reading Program is the perfect way to do it. The Read for the Win summer reading program will motivate and reward readers while also offering fun and educational programming!

Fun & Events: Check out our website to learn about all of the fun and educational events and activities taking place at library and community locations throughout the summer.

Sign up is complete, but if you have already registered and have not received your prize yet, you can continue to read and do activities until Sept. 3.  Sept. 3 is the final day to pick up prizes.

Ages Birth to 5

We are offering a Read to Me program for children not yet ready to read on their own. This snuggle up with a book program will help your child develop a richer vocabulary and a love of reading. The more words your child knows the easier it will be for them to read, and learn when they enter school. Participate in the programs we have lined up for your child this summer for even more learning experiences.  Children will earn points for listening to books read and badges for participating in learning activities. Prizes will be awarded for 300 minutes of reading time and 50 activity points.

 

Ages 6 to 11

Read for 600 minutes during the summer to receive a prize.  A prize will also be awarded to children who participate in activities to earn badges and points.  50 activity points are needed to receive a prize.

 

Ages 12 to 17

Read three books this summer to earn a prize.  You can also earn badges and activity points by participating in activities.  For every 10 activity points you earn, you will receive a chance to win a Kindle Fire at the end of the summer.

 

Adult

Read three books this summer to earn a prize.  You can also earn badges and activity points by participating in activities.  For every 10 activity points you earn, you will receive a chance to win a Kindle Fire at the end of the summer.
