Summer Reading Program 2015: For Preschool Children

Preschool Summer Reading Program

This summer, preschool children and their parents are invited to take part in the library’s “Path to Reading Program.” Beginning June 24th, this free seven-week program encourages parents to read regularly to their young children for the chance to win weekly prizes.

Here’s how to participate:

1. Pick up a “Path to Reading” log at the front desk of the library.

2. Starting June 24th, begin to fill out the “stepping stones” on the reading log. Read one book to your child for every stepping stone. Your child earns a sticker for every book completed and wins prizes along the way. Finish the path, and the child earns a ticket for our end-of-summer lottery—a chance to win a movie and pizza night for the whole family!

To earn prizes:

Bring your reading log to Story Time each Wednesday for your child to earn their stickers and prizes. Children are eligible to earn one prize per week. 

When your child’s “Path to Reading” log is complete, bring it to Story Time to receive a ticket for the end-of-summer lottery. The drawing for the movie and pizza night will be held August 6th. The winner of the drawing will be contacted by phone by the Children’s Librarian.
