Summer Reading 2017

Posted by thite on

The library’s popular Summer Reading Program for all ages will begin on May 24 and continue through July 29. Last year more than 2,000 local readers participated.

Children earn prizes by reading each day, while teens receive rewards for reading books and attending programs. Adults earn entry forms for a weekly drawing by reading and reviewing eligible titles. Registration, in person or online, begins May 24.

Research shows that students experience learning and reading loss when they are not taking part in active education. The library’s Summer Reading Program helps children and teens retain and enhance their reading skills over the summer while also nurturing a community of engaged readers.

In addition to a summer full of great reading, there are many FREE programs for all ages, from toddlers to adults. Please call or visit the library website for registration and ticketing details.

Imagination Library

Posted by thite on

Through the United Way of Summit County’s Imagination Library, preschool children receive free books! Each month, a brand new, age-appropriate book will be mailed to every child enrolled. With the arrival of the first book, the classic “The Little Engine That Could,” children begin to experience the joy of finding their very own book in their mailboxes. These moments continue each month until the child turns five, and in their very last month in the program the book they receive is “Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come.”

All children age birth to five in Summit County are eligible! Click here to sign up.
