June and July 2014 Children’s Programs
Summer Reading: The Way It Works
Listeners are children up through kindergarten. Parents/guardians of listeners register at the library beginning June 2nd. Registration continues throughout the summer program.
At Registration, parents will complete a short form and will receive a calendar to record how many books they read to the child each day. Families set their own reading goal.
On each visit to the library, stop by the Youth Services Desk and record your calendar count on our copy of your child’s calendar. We will give your child a sticker for each book they listen to, which they will place on their individual poster displayed in the library.
Readers are children who are entering into first through fifth grade. Readers may begin registering June 2nd online; they may register at anytime after that as long as the program continues. Readers will be asked to decide how much time they want to read during the program. Please be reasonable with your goal to make it achievable during the program.
After you read, log in at any time and record how many minutes you have read. Prizes will be give away throughout the program. The more time you spend reading the more chances you have to receive a prize. All time must be recorded by Tuesday, July 22 @ 8:00 pm.
Our new Storytime schedule will be posted in August. We hope you had a summer full of excitement and scientific discovery with us! Congratulations to all our storytime friends who met their reading goal and earned the title of Readologist!

Children may register for a 20 minute time slot to read with a trained listening dog in the Storytime Room on these Saturdays. There are usually several dogs eager to hear children read to them. If you like dogs and reading, call for your time slot.
