To into the library to sign up and pick your reading goal for the summer.
With summer vacation just around the corner, the Sierra Vista Public Library will launch this year's Summer Reading Program with a special kickoff event on Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.at the library.
In a letter sent out to schools, SPL notes the SRP can help prevent the "summer slide" - learning loss that occurs when children do not engage in educational activities during the summer months, and even accelerate reading growth during the summer months. There will be grand prize drawings, hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, and carnival games run by our Summer Reading Volunteers!
Herbert Wescoat Memorial Library's 2017 Summer Reading Program kicks off Monday, June 12 with a theme of "Build a Better World". Special guests make appearances at the library on Thursdays at 11:30 a.m., and a variety of artists will share their talents during the library's Fridays with the arts performances taking place on Fridays at 3 p.m. Families are invited to join the Read-to-Me portion of the program.
Registration will open May 26 and close June 10. Chalmette Movies passes to see the 30 anniversary showing of the "Chipmunk Adventure" will be given out to those registering between May 31 and June 14. This program encourages youths to take responsibility for their fines by reading their favorite books, or trying out new ones, in exchange for forgiving overdue fines. Adults who read three books also can win prizes. She said that upon registration, participants will be given the materials they need to learn which programs will be available at which branches and how to keep track of their participation over the summer in a quest for prizes.
