Children’s Summer Reading Kickoff

Mark your calendars! The children’s summer reading program kickoff will be on Saturday, June 4, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Come join us for games, crafts, a petting zoo, and fun. And, of course, this will be the first chance for your little readers to pick up their reading logs and start reading.

We will have a petting zoo at this year’s kickoff. Yay!

Also during the summer we will have children’s afternoon clubs and special performances featuring magicians, musicians, balloon twisting, animals, and more for the whole family. Stop by to pick up a monthly calendar to stay updated on all that’s happening this summer at the library.

Summer reading for all ages

We will soon begin our summer reading program for all ages. Our theme this year is “Every hero has a story.” Check out the details below.everyherostory

Adults
The adult program will run from June 22 until August 15. You’ll win prizes along the way and might even win a Kindle Fire HD! Sign up, read, and win prizes. Life is good.

Teens
Teens, don’t miss the kickoff on Tuesday, June 16, at 6:30 p.m. We’ll have pizza, games, crafts, and more. The teen program will run from June 16 until August 15, and the more you read, the better your chances will get of winning one of the major prizes, including a Kindle Fire HD. But, of course, the best prize will be the reward of reading itself.

Children
We will hold our annual kickoff on Saturday, June 20, from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. The whole family is invited to join us for activities, snacks, live music, and tons o’ fun. We’ll be hosting special guests, including cool pirates, real life princesses, and the Strike Force Girls from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball organization.

By participating in the summer reading program, your child will not only win prizes for reading but also progress during the summer rather than experience the dreaded “summer slide” (losing the gains he made during the previous school year). The child program will run from June 20 until August 15.

Can’t make it to the kickoff?
Any teen or child who wants to participate in the summer reading program but can’t make the kickoff can still sign up after the kickoff dates during the library’s regular hours.
