The theme for teens this summer is “Get in the game. Read.”

Teens and adults, sign up for our summer reading program, and get prizes throughout the summer for reading. To get started, simply pick up a log at the library. You’ll get prizes along the way and might even win one of our grand prizes. Teen grand prizes are a Kindle Fire, tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm, and tickets to Six Flags. The adult grand prize is a Kindle Fire. Our summer reading program won’t last forever, so pick up a log today!

Read to Me A-Z

Parents, have you heard of Read to Me A-Z? Read to Me A-Z is a reading program for children ages zero to six. Read a picture book to your child for every letter of the alphabet according to the first letter of the author’s last name (you can read any book for letters Q and X). When you have finished reading through the alphabet, your child will get a small prize, and you will be entered into a drawing for four Knott’s Berry Farm tickets.

Read to Me A-Z reading logs are available for pick up in the children’s room. The program will end on February 29, so pick up your log soon!

At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16th, the Buena Park Library will celebrate the Day of the Child/Day of the Book, El Día de los Niños/El Diá de los Libros with a special presentation by Birdie Mendoza of Birdie’s Playhouse. Join Birdie as she uses puppets, ribbon streamers, and music with a tropical Latin twist to entertain and educate children about wildlife and the importance of reading. There will be a special drawing for four Knott’s Berry Farm tickets at the close of the show.

Book Lovers Day!

Yes!  Today Friday, August 9th is Book Lovers Day!  As you can well expect, we love to read and Book Lovers Day encourages you to kick back, relax, and read a good book.  From reading under shaded trees or on your comfortable couch or in your local library (we hope the Buena Park Library!), the possibilities of what and where to read are endless!  What will you read today?

And of course, the Buena Park Library District has a bunch of great  books to curl up to.
