What: Kid's Summer Reading Program

Who: Birth - Grade 6 welcome to participate!
Why: Read books and earn prizes!
How to Play:
Please play this game only once, but keep reading in our Gold Medal Readers game!
Here’s what you do:
You don't have to be reading on your own yet to play. In the baby/toddler game (ages 0-2), you mark a space each time you share a book or do an activity with your baby. Win some fun bubbles, a wearable rattle, and a board book.
But Wait! There's More!
Hundreds of fun programs this summer are all free, and include science, magicians, LEGOs, puppets, music, animals, crafts, and dinosaurs. You can even come in and practice reading to a real live dog! At the end of July, we have four parties with bubbles, hula hoops, face painting, dress-up, and an obstacle course.
