ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, READ! 2016 SUMMER READING PROGRAM
We’ll exercise our reading muscles during this year’s sports-themed summer reading program at the library. Kids ages 3 through 13 (or Grade 8) can sign up at the library any time on or after Friday, June 24th. They will receive a calendar for checking off each day that they read more than twenty minutes. The goal is to read for twenty minutes or more each day. Each time they’ve reached seven check marks they will bring your reading record to the library where they will have three options:
- Receive passes to fun RI locations like the Providence Children’s Museum or a ticket to a PawSox game.
- Choose a prize from our prize box.
- Add a raffle ticket to the drawing for a grand prize.
Any kids ages 12 and up who are interested in volunteering to help with the Summer Reading Program (making decorations, planning activities, etc.) should contact Sarah.
