Wouldn’t you like to keep your child engaged in learning over the summer break in a rewarding and fun way? Just think, they can build their vocabulary, learn and practice good grammar skills, go on an adventure in knowledge and have a good time, all by reading books!
Our Summer Reading Program is designed to challenge readers and provide a structure for them to spend some quality time reading with a accountability program to assist in not getting too distracted with television and video games.
All you have to do is sign up and read the required number of age appropriate books in the allotted program time – don’t worry it’s a breeze! There’s a party with even more goodies at the end of the program. We’ve even got a Summer Reading Program for adults too.
WHEN & WHERE
The Summer Reading Program begins in May with a kick off party and ends in July with a completion party. Every year the Program gets a new “Theme” and activities are planned based on that theme. Program is available at both Fort Branch and Haubstadt locations.
Our Student workers at the libraries put together programs for our middle school aged children. We will hold them periodically throughout the year usually on a Friday evening. Check the Calendar on this website to see when our next one is scheduled.
Starting in the Summer of 2019, during our Summer Reading Program, we will also begin a book club for Middle School kids! We will read a book in June and July and then have a meeting during each of those months to discuss the book and play games! Keep and eye out for sign-ups!
