School-aged children who are reading will be paired with a teen to explore and read books together this summer. This program will take place in July and pairs will be asked to schedule four meetings during the month. Teen mentors, who must have completed the 7th grade, will be reading pals and not tutors. Together they will select and read books here at the library.
Summer Reading Passport - Registration begins June 6th
Fill out a form with your name, phone number and school. You will be given a Reading Passport. As you read, you will receive stamps from each continent, until your passport is completed. For the hours that you read, you will win prizes, and be entered in our Grand Prize Drawing!
Reading is cool and so is being a member of this exciting library club!
Students in Grades K-5, who are reading on their own, will earn colorful embroidered patches during the school year.
Children may join the club at any time during the school year. To earn a patch, readers can read 10 books in each category - either chosen from our Reading Club lists or on their own.
