Readers of all ages are invited to join us at the library for Summer Reading Club and earn prizes for reading all summer long! The 2018 theme of Summer Reading Club is "Libraries Rock!" and the club will run from June 2 through August 11.
Highlights of the program include a presentation from Ironwood Wolves on the lives of wolves, a West African drum performance from Sogbety Diomande, magic and humor from Michael Mage, and a juggling performance from Matt Jergens. Children ages five to nine can stop by the library for programs featuring musical instruments, slime, and gardens. Tweens will find weekly special programs just for them, including a presentation from Mad Science. Storytime and crafts are available for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.
Teens can complete a bingo sheet filled with a variety of activities, like reading, attending a library event, or volunteering in the community for entry into the grand prize drawing. Additionally, teens can fill out tickets with information on what books they are reading to be entered into weekly drawings to win prizes. Adults may enter to win weekly prizes for every 10 items they borrow. Items include books, audiobooks, magazines, eBooks or electronic magazines.
Parents can register children for Summer Reading Club in the Children's Department starting on June 2. Children will receive a reading log to keep track of their progress and prizes when they reach various goals for reading times. Prizes include a bookmark, a tattoo, a book bag, a coupon, and a book. Completing different activities and library programs listed on the reading logs will allow children to earn additional prizes and sharpen their literacy skills. Teens and adults can visit the Reference Department to sign up for the club.
